Saturday was a mixed day in the garden! Firstly, a rush to ensure that all mowing and edging was done and then pruning the Philadelphus shrubs before garden visitors arrived and log splitting, lugging and stacking began. Logging is one of those nice 'squirrel' jobs as it's looking ahead and preparing for winter.
It all worked perfectly as while we were logging, the visitors wandered, explored and enjoyed picnics on the lawns in warm sunshine! I do have to say that it seemed a tad weird having visitors whilst working but I did warn them and they didn't seem to mind. As the logs were already sawn, there was no chainsawing noises to disturb visitors but just the gentle sound of an axe splitting wood! (Can axing even be described as gentle??!!)
We made money for the NGS and filled an entire bay with logs for winter - all thanks to Chris!! What a star he really is!
