Craft, mainly about copper work but not exclusively and anything i think is interesting to me, on occasions. I may do it the wrong way but it works for me....well, as you might see sometimes it doesn't..
Sunday must be destruction day
A day spent burning cursed black thorn and brambles. Its surprisingly hard to get going , its all air and no fuel. When it takes though it goes up like a rocket and scorches everything in a 20 ft radius. It kills off the bramble crowns underneath though.... but it's impractical to do it all over. Last year that view would have been of 8ft high brambles, thick as a ships rope. A petrol brush cutter, twice and it's crowns of growing brambles. The one good thing about blackthorn is when you cut it down it seems not to shoot back much. They do have other good things about them, the early blossom in the spring and sloes for xmas sloe gin.....but in this context they are horrible.
