Tree Care

Much of this dull day was spent struggling with recovering the pictures for the following posts:

The second of these (No. 148) was the most difficult because I could not find the original pictures anywhere and tinkered with substitutions, none of which was suitable for a header.

The last, (No. 150) was the longest search, until I found them on two e-mails received in 2014.

I finished clearing rubbish from behind the garden shed, then took up Jackie’s suggestion to go for a late afternoon drive.

We pulled up on Lodge Lane where I changed my camera lens in order to seek permission to photograph an activity along the edge of a field. Two young men made their way through the trees to ask us if we needed any help. They obviously thought we may have a problem with the car. This gave me the opportunity to seek my permission.

What was underway was the felling and burning of branches from a series of trees that had come down.

Alfie was the considerate and helpful young man who enjoyed posing with Paddy, his terrier.

This evening we dined on Jackie’s toothsome chicken and veg stewp and fresh crusty bread with which I finished the Malbec and everyone else abstained.
