In the Pink




I would like to welcome Barb my latest follower , thank you for choosing to become a follower and many thanks to all who leave comments for me.

I had a terrible time taking this photograph and the colours aren't quite right but this is the best I could achieve. We have bright sunshine interspersed  with strong winds and cloudy skies, thankfully no rain though. This is the first card I have made in a few weeks all other posts were in Drafts, we've been busy preparing the garden for winter and had 2 lorry loads of timber delivered, this is enough to keep the wood burning stoves going for the next 4 to 5 years, it now needs to be cut to 16 inch lengths and stored away. It will be well into next summer before we get finished.





Yes I admit we must be mad, this is about 90% of the load we've done about 10%  over the past 12 days the pile was 4.3 metres high.
