We've been pretty busy recently, helping a friend move house and building a firewood shelter in our garden at home, so not a lot of time for photos and posting to the blog... I'll start writing about how we're building the firewood shelter shortly, but for now here's a few pictures from the woods, taken this weekend.
While collecting materials for the firewood shelter we got our Suzuki and a trailer all the way into Sweep Wood for the first time:
This included driving over the culvert, which worked just fine:
The area we recently coppiced in Sweep Wood is growing very rapidly, despite the dry weather:
There's another new plant there as well, Hogweed I think:
The old Hornbeam pollards at the edge are recovering nicely - we'd like to lay this growth into a hedge in a few years:
And there's another pollard, which we created to set up a bench for felling, and then left as a handy bird table to leave food on:
now it looks like this, and will be an interesting looking tree soon I think:
That's all for now..
