The wood pile

(064:  The woodpile buried in summer.  Photo © 2009 by Robin)

We never did find the time to finish moving the wood from the elm trees that were cut down in the spring.  The wildflowers have sprung up all around and over the wood, burying it in grass, weeds, and blossoms.  There are spots where you can’t tell the wood is under all the growth.

  1. Nature in action. We lost an elm tree due to an ice storm awhile back. Nice shot.

    I really like Preston’s doggie. And I like the woodpile going back to nature.
    Do you have a fireplace? Or woodburning stove, or means of using the wood pile?

      I really like Preston’s doggie, too. Seems others do as well. 🙂

      We have two fireplaces, one woodburning and one gas. The wood will be put to good use. The trees that provided shade in the summer will provide heat in the winter.

    Pretty perspective capture. I like old wood pile shots where nature has taken over. I’d like to have a woodburning stove too.

      Thanks, Anna. 🙂

      We looked into getting a woodburning stove, but decided it was more than we want to deal with right now. They are a lot of work and quite messy.

    Robin, we also have cut tree logs in our side yard. Ours are full of who knows what! We have a friend with a log splitter & need to borrow it soon. We lost about 6 trees due to an ice storm. But, we still have many, so the sadness of their loss is easier to swallow.(lots of fire wood for the winter) We lost Elm & Walnut trees for the most part. Too bad nothing so beautiful as wildflowers are surrounding them. D

    i heart preston’s doggie too 🙂

    robin, this photo has captured such contrast between the rough solid textural timber and the fragile flowering grasses around it

    The woodpile – it seems – is creating a wonderful spot for these sweet wildflowers. Love the softness and detail.
