Getting ready for our holiday

After much thought about where we’d like to go for our summer holiday and the moment of realization that all the photos of beautiful places I’d like to go had lovely countryside and rivers or lakes, Trenoweth was the obvious choice. This weekend we had a quick trip basically to decide which projects we want to tackle and what supplies we will need. Last week in June we’ll be up there for a week.

Lots of future wood chip paths to work on.

The bottom one is wild honeysuckle, apparently considered a pest, but I love it.

That’s about all the news, looking forward to a whole week soon.

It finally dried out

The torrential rain has finally slowed down enough for us to venture back to our beloved Trenoweth.

After the trees were blown down in a storm, we have plenty of wood for the new chipper so we can make paths. My next chip projects will include around the house where is gets VERY muddy, and one stretch of the walk to the pond where the wild pigs tore up the ground rooting for whatever they root for. If my sisters ever come up to visit, it would be nice if they didn’t break their ankles just walking to the pond.

We did take time to smell (and photograph) some new flowers

A fun time was had by all, including Sophie and our present foster Hegen
