A mighty task complete!

Yes! Finally completed all the log splitting, creating something like 13 cubic metres of firewood for winter 2011-12. Well, not quite ALL the logs split - the very big and very awkward ones have been delightfully formed into a landscape "feature" down in the woodland glade to be! Maybe one or two will fall to the axe yet.

Simon asserting his macho credentials - cord-tastic!

Julia being deeply feminine in a glade - despite having a stinking cold

A gorgeous spring day today - lots flying about and buzzing - notably Brimstone, Small Tortoiseshell and Peacock butterflies, and a couple of Swallows. Also another new garden bird today - a Lapwing (at last) mobbing one of the local Buzzards over the wet fields to the west of us. And a day or two ago a Noctule bat was a garden tick at dusk as well.
