Ax Work

I'm still trying to finish up some loose ends in the backyard. In the last few weeks, I've been doing some chopping, moving and stacking of wood up back. Back in September, we had a couple of trees cut down to make some room. Trees, once they get rolling, grow fast. Our plan is to try and finagle some more late afternoon sunshine in August and September. When the sun starts dipping in mid-August, these trees have grown so much, they're blocking the rays of ol' Mister Sun. Hopefully, this tree work will mean more warmth on the deck, longer in the afternoon. The trees we won't miss and the chopped wood will provide fodder to take the chill off next fall.

  1. Good idea to take advantage of more sunlight. Sun = warmth & brighter spirits. The red handle on your ax is great for this pic.

  4. The opposite is true down here of course--the more shade the better! That is a great picture. I like the red handle too.

  6. When we were in Colorado last month, our son-in-law ordered up 4 cords of wood which were delivered to his home on top of the mountain. That, along with the couple of cords he already had, should do the trick, he thought.

    Must be chilly up your way if you're wanting to rub your hands on red walls!

  8. I think all the wood chopping has been meaning more warmth in the afternoon for Mr. Birdman already. Maybe even a little perspiration.
