Don't worry, I know what happened... it was the mischievous elves who live in the bird boxes during winter and use your log pile as a staircase. If you check back tomorrow they will probably have rebuilt it for you. If not, you may have to put a note and a small bribe through the little round window... :-)
Love it Lotta!! I can see those pixies now!
Could you just give them a talking to Cathy?
Sadly the note didn't work
Just call it wood art, take some photos and write a book!
You think so Viv?!
The next Turner prize: you just need to think of an esoteric title.
The prize money could buy me a lot of dry wood...
Hmmm....it seems that stacking wood falls into the “chore” category for you, Freda...and i suppose the weather for you these days is not conducive to being outside and being creative! I do like stacking wood and creating a pattern...but again, it requires regular shaped pieces, a nice day, and a bit of whimsy...and maybe you have raccoons at night who are making this mess?
Summer yes, and nice dry wood.....definitely a chore just now,
Think 'Good enough!', Freda. And you've given us a smile.
I may just stick the tarpaulin back over it...with a smile if I can manage one - it took hours to stack!
Lotta is on to something (she's familiar with woodland creatures).
Julia's notes it requires regular cut pieces to stack to precision.
Viv and Susan's artistic slant is a good thought (Avalanche!).
But, as Rosemary says...good enough!
After all, regardless of how it stacks, it will still keep you warm.
Pretty is as pretty does (if you can apply that to a wood stack). :)
It is very wet wood but does burn - the best way to deal with it may be to burn it all as soon as possible!
That unruly wood will keep you nice and cosy while Storm Ciara is blowing outside this weekend. Stay safe and warm. X
I hope storm Ciara doesn't blow the rest down!
Oops ! Know just what you mean! I am always too cross to take a photo when havinga similar situation. Must admit to considering changing to a pellet fired stove but I suppose that could lead to an even messier problem!
Food for thought Mary...
How lucky you are Freda to have such a fine stack of Wood that it can tumble - I've cut Wood the hard way a few times and I love any stack whether standing or tumbled - blessings on your stack (and I've no idea why my browser has decided to capitalise Wood twice but it won't be see denied)
It's not the nicest Wood Mike, it's very wet and will take forever to dry out - if I can get it under cover!
