Dead Wood

Our little copse is full of dead wood. We decided to clean some of it up today and drag it over to a pile of dead wood that has been stacked up by the developer to be removed later. I had asked them permission to add to their pile earlier in the week. We spent about 4 hours this morning dragging wood out. Here Ed is sawing a dead tree in half with a hand saw. We need a chain saw!

Some of the pieces were logs and required two of us. That was hard work.  Ed and I each dragged some medium size limbs to the pile, and I carted the smaller pieces in the wheelbarrow. We are very tired now. That's why I'm taking a blogging break! It was a beautiful day and we got a lot done! I hear we're missing a nice snowstorm in Denver. Oh, well!

  2. This weekend while the Coloradoans are shoveling snow and Ed and Judy are being woodcutters, Jim and Coreen get to hike to the top of a castle ruin right in their neighorhood. Quite a view!!
