There's something behind the woodpile .....

Can you see Lovely Hubby disappearing into the woodland ....
... the dogs didn't even bother to follow him he had been going up and down, up and down, like a yoyo for hours!!
... he vanished behind the hedge that is behind the washing.
He was clearing some of the undergrowth with his brushcutter and with secateurs and sheer brute force.

Once he had made an impression on either side of the gap we both set too barrowing load after load of wood chippings from our enormous pile, to their new home on the edge of the woodland where the huge slices of the old oak tree are now weathering.
It took almost all day to do the bit we did, with me skiving off to make us some lunch and pour a few much needed long cold drinks.  Hard work, but well worth doing.
It turns out we have to move the wood chippings as soon as we can, as where they have been unloaded is exactly where we have to have checks made to see if the rainwater harvesting soak-away system will work effectively.

So the 'something' behind the woodpile - is a pathway made of woodchips :-)
(And yes, this is yet another little shed lurking on the edge of the woods!!)

  1. Those woodchips are coming in really handy !!

    We have lots of sheds too , all have different functions and we need another soon as our orphaned lambs next year will need a warm place for the first few weeks.

  2. Your tree is full of ripe fruit, are they apples. You can't have too many sheds.

  3. I don't think I've seen this view before. Well done on all the hard work! x

  4. Rather something behind the woodpile than "something nasty in the woodshed".

  5. Hmmmm somebody mention not having too many sheds? Sounds like a good plan to me!

  6. What I noticed that I so miss about the country is the clothesline in the back of one of your photos. My husband helped me string up one line that I can hang out sheets on, but that's all I can manage in my small back yard.

  7. Such a lot of work. I hope you got to put your feet up later !

  8. Good old woodchip, where would we be without it! I could do with about 12 ton of the stuff!
