cherry in smoke

Record high temperatures for the end of September made work at midday especially uncomfortable.

But a big bonfire throughout the day cleared many of the nasty piles of sticks and tangling brambles.

Some of the cleared oak and cherry saplings were too thin for chainsawing but will make excellent poles for supporting beans and climbers. I pointed their ends with a hatchet.

Here is the growing stack, resting against an elderly cherry tree as the bonfire smoke catches the afternoon sunlight.
