1st September

Regardless of what the weather is doing, psychologically  September feels like the beginning of autumn, and after autumn comes winter. 



This is what a log store should look like before either arrive ☺   I cut and Management stacks, he does a much neater job of it than I do.  There's room for a few more larger logs on the left-hand side if the mood takes me but there's plenty of other work to do and this will be enough.

  1. Looks like a great store, for sure. If your Summer wood burning is any indication, you'll probably need every stick you can cache to get through Winter! (Either that or you'll have your mildest winter on record and will have to sleep with windows open. There's just no figuring weather anymore. *sigh*)

    1. Kris, I'm hopeful this will last, whatever sort of winter we have. Last winter was mild and wet but the two before that were some of the coldest I can remember, and during neither did we get through an entire log store. It was close though ...

  2. That looks a wonderful store of wood to keep you warm. Hard work getting there, but then wood is supposed to warm you twice.

    We have some of our own wood this year, but several of our local New Forest commoners sell and deliver seasoned logs from the Forest woodlands. One of the log sellers is called Mr Sparks :-)

    1. Hi DW, we're fortunate to have a big supply of wood from felling all the leylandii, but no-one as beautifully named as Mr Sparks :}

      Hope you're all feeling a bit better this week; thinking of you, it will be a long, long time before you stop missing the old chap, xx

  3. Looks like a huge bug hotel. By the way gorgeous sunshine in Carlisle yesterday so we had to leave our coats on the train.

    1. Sue, I have some bundles of cut bamboo in odd corners although they are probably surplus to requirements! During the winter I usually find a mouse nest or two as I dismantle the stacks. Very glad you had decent weather for your railway trip.

  4. That looks just beautiful. I love a well-stacked logpile; there's a sense of "Winter? Bring it on!"
