Tree Felling

My hubby just loves heights, and any excuse to get his ropes out and he's away! Today he's been tree felling - Sycamores - so in between marking and lesson prep I've been sending lunches and drinks up to him in a carrier bag attached to a karabiner. To add to my interrupted work schedule, our friend Paul came over to chat to him in the tree - Nigel took some dangerous trees down for him last year, and then my father popped in. Kettle on yet again! I was secretly pleased for the break to be honest. Anyway, I'm off to cook dinner now - I can hardly stand all the excitement!

Whilst I do feel sorry for the poor old trees, I will look forward to weeding next year, when hopefully, there won't be the usual onslaught of sycamore seedlings... not to mention the extra light the garden will get this year!

Well, I don't know what he is complaining about those pictures are fine! They make him look like he know's what he is doing (i'm sure he does by the way). There are a lot of trees there, I only imagined one :)

Too funny! He's back up there today taking down the rest. It's two trees to cut and one to keep I think!
