(picture: laying wire-mesh on the boardwalk)
Saturday was our last Lake Work Day for the year. Despite snow and sleet and temperatures just above zero, good progress was made in laying the wire-mesh on the boardwalk (to prevent users from slipping). Anagarika Will and his mother planted a number of new shrubs. Initial efforts were made to install a handsome owl box but still more effort is required. Now it is time to oil the gardening tools and store them away for the winter. A fresh load of firewood is due to be delivered this coming Thursday. The car is due to have it's winter tyres fitted. A fire extinguisher check is due today. Soon it will be time to put out the annual bag of Christmas goodies for the postie and dustbin men. Then we prepare for the arrival of holiday season visitors.
