of falling trees

hooray! The two big gum (eucalyptus) trees out the front of the shack, which block so much warm sun in winter, and now remnants on the ground!

Both went down this afternoon, perfectly dropped by a friend from church, fitting absolutely to the inch onto the ground between our house and next door - quite amazing!

The chainsaws have been roaring all afternoon and there is a whole lot less of the trees now than there was this morning! Also a whole lot bigger pile of stuff for me to burn, but that'll have to wait until the tree tops dry off a bit - not too much, I don't want a wildfire - but a little bit, nothing worse than thick white smoke instead of a good solid flame!

Tree number 1 - good reason for dropping!
