End of the Summer

This log has been seasoning for 18 months down the bottom of the garden.

Today`s the day i grow a pair and get sawing.


I figured i take a tea-break and put a couple of pictures up, seeing as i found my camera.


I`ll get these chopped and burning by tonight.

which make this little chap happy..

Lil`old garden update.

 In April, the garden looked pretty much like this :

As of half an hour ago, the yard looks like this :


i just let nature take its course this year. I cut the grass maybe twice; didnt feed anything.


i planted this fuchsia a month ago, the purple flowers go really well with the crocosmia behind them.

the grapevine started growing eventually, i`m expecting my first real grapes this year, not many mind.
