As seems to be the common theme in blogland this week (at least in the UK) we have been making to most of the break in the rain and tidying up the garden a bit. That's a "Royal" we, of course. I've mainly just been supervising.
The extent of my participation was when I had to drive the tractor with the trailer on while Mr Marmadaisy carried the other end of a 21ft tree.
Anyone who knew me when I was learning to drive will have an idea of what this was like.
What I should have done was take a picture of the original location (the bottom field) so you could appreciate how difficult it was to get this tree from there, across 2 fields, round the back of the house and into position at the end of the garden. After getting it off the tractor we had to carry it between us (6 inches at a time) another 30 feet to position. It's going to form the side of a path that Mr Marmadaisy is making to link two sections of garden.
And here is the "so far" picture of our bonfire. We're having our first bonfire party (get set for your history lesson and Guy pictures)* this year, so it needs to be a goodie.
* My friend April doesn't need the history lesson. I know this because we sat next to each other for 2 years of GCSE history where we learned all about Guy Fawkes.
