The logs were delivered on Saturday. They come from a local woodsman, and come from coppiced woods. Healthy for the environment and beneficial to wildlife.
The height of the log store was raised in the summer, so it made it easier for my husband and I to stack them. If the weather is fine it is a job I enjoy, very therapeutic.
As most of you know, Nella is a rescue dog. She was abandoned in woodland. Her story is hers alone........but whenever the logs arrive, she will not leave the spot until they are all stacked. Same every year, and I wonder..........
As the garden fades, I am inspired more by the flowers because there are so few.
In the dull days of late autumn they become increasingly precious.
I played with my macro lens today. I haven't used it for such a long time.
I had forgotten how much pleasure it gives me, to walk the garden, and see flowers in a different light.
The seedpods of the stinking iris are just beginning to open, bringing colour to the woodland area.
Natures artwork is everywhere and there is none so beautiful than a spiders web,
especially after rainfall........
Beautiful autumn days, but I am getting ready for winter...........
