apologies for a few days break, been busy & away. catching up now. Hate to waste resources but no means of using or chipping huge piles of sticks, branches & wood in garden so Bonfire it is, will have to do another burn of two to get rid of it all. Nights are getting lighter, love the crackle & warmth of a real fire, a kind of magic. ..but theres still a cuckoo calling out there at 10.30pm !
