The Whitebeam (Sorbus Aria) that I planted as a tiny sapling, nearly twenty years ago, is finally bearing fruit.
While the fruits are edible, they are quite tasteless.
Still, it will be a beautiful shade tree, in about twenty five years. :)
I've been watching these two building their Round house for around a year now, fascinating.
Their dedication to using only traditional methods for the build, and the sheer amount of effort and enthusiasm, is inspiring.
I used to be able to upload photos directly from my laptop, but that option seems to be gone. I opened a Flickr account yesterday, and tried to upload from there, but no luck, just the message "Image cannot be loaded from the passed link". Any thoughts?
Had a great quiet and relaxing weekend in the woods. Friday was a bit damp while setting up, but saturday was glorious. I was able to read the book I had been meaning to for ages. It chucked it down for an hour around 3am this morning, but it was warm and dry in the lavvu. Sliced ribeye steak...
Hoping to get out for a solo 2 nighter toward the end of the month, using my old lavvu.
With this in mind, I thought I'd set it up in the garden to season, and air out in readiness.
We're expecting some heavy rain and dry spells over the weekend, so should be great to bring up the canvases...
Found a lovely bit of secluded woodland, next to a livery I have been doing some work at. So yesterday, after I had finished I hiked the 300 meters to the wood for an overnighter.
All packed on Thursday evening.
Set up for Friday night.
Cowboy coffee on the boil.
Ribeye steak with onions...
A few pics of a very hot but relaxing, much needed, Friday and Saturday night out in the woods.
Friday nights set up.
All of this to roam and play in.
10 acres of woodland to camp in.
Padron peppers for lunch.
Seasoned steak on a stick.
Not really bushcrafty but....
Thought I'd spend a couple of hours in the sun, and have a go at making a face mask. Making a pattern that worked was harder than the mask. Not great, but I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. Will have a go at fastenings and decorations tomorrow.
