Most winter tasks have been completed, but just a couple remained.
I had a small building job to do; the top of a wall needed re-working. A 30 min job (now completed!).
The only other task was burning all the leaves from 'The Royal Oak'. I presume that the Hedgehogs have finished with them, so time for a bonfire. We found no creatures beneath the piles.
I'm sure most people enjoy lighting fires, there is something very satisfying about getting a fire going really well, and nothing worse than struggling to get it lit at all.
This one was titillated with a good splash of White Spirit. The dry leaves roared away, then burned to ashes in about 10 mins. Job done.
Everyone who lights garden bonfires knows that this is one of the most wonderful aromas. Lovely.
