Passed the first test of a family visit, despite 3 days of rain. We think everyone had a good time.
We had a guy come and de-bramble the rest of the barn. Unfortunately, the bulldozer managed to murder the japanese quince, and yet leave the pear stump that is sprouting from the rootstock. Sigh.
I got the first delivery of wood for next year stacked and undercover before the deluge.
The old pear looks shabbier and shabbier every year.
Had a bit of a wind storm yesterday and a small tree blew over. I don´t know what it was, the neighbor only said they used to use them to make brooms. Any thoughts? Could be firewood, could be some garden structure.
