Greenway has become a Whiteway

Did a bit this morning, tried to get the bonfire going but after a lot of smoke and a few feeble flames it finally died on me, but moved a lot of the brash onto it so it is ready to go next time.

The greenway was a whiteway today with all the frost on the trees. Quite a magical feel but also a little eerie..

I did a lot of work on the next clearing, which is under a large oak tree. I untangled a load of hawthorn and blackthorn trees from the oak’s lower branches and tried to cut a window in the neighbouring trees, to create a shaft of sunlight that will hopefully fall onto the ground under the oak. It will be interesting to see what grows in this corridor of light next year.

Also tried my hand at dead-hedging. It was not a pretty sight. Way too little patience for this sort of activity!

Not much else to report, kept busy and never felt the cold until I walked home. A productive morning.

Until next time!
