Autumn is a busy time in the garden, with two truckloads of mulch to spread
and firewood to get in for the winter. We don’t cut down trees in our forest but sometimes nature helps out.
It’s hard work – he cuts,
then Betsy helps us take it up the hill.
I find some fascinating features in the forest
trees that appear to have died have not.
and stack the wood ready for our winter warmth.
The garden still has some colour
and the bees love the callistemon.
Five years ago I made a bench from the branches of our pruned fruit trees.
Sadly, it has succumbed to the elements.
Maybe another project…..
