Lately our days have been taken up with firewood, Baz felling, cutting, Hugh and I splitting, mulch has been spread, and some of last year’s dry wood is now in the shed. This year’s is split, and getting such wonderful sunshine, and lots of heat from the very hot days, so is starting to dry out already.
Photos of firewood days from 2005. My minimalist carpentry skills did not help at all in building this woodshed. My part was to pass the hammer, the nails, and the level, and keep the billy boiling!!!
This is our larger wood shed, it will be full again, very soon.
This is on a friend’s farm. Old trees that had been felled for some years, huge logs, the large chainsaw coughed, but managed to get through.
These are not the largest pieces, just some of the difficult bits, left for another day.
And this is where some of those logs ended up, as winter warmth.
The photos I have taken recently, of the wood and trees, I cannot use here, as I am entering a
Photo Essay Competition,
and the rules state that you cannot use a photo that has been published before. Some sorting, editing, and selecting to do, but once it is done, I will be very relieved. 5 to 10 photos, a title, no other words needed.
A huge challenge, but as they say, use it or lose it, so I might as well use and keep, whatever “ it” might be.

On the highway of life you can’t always be in the fast lane”
