Season's Greetings

Season's greetings from soggy Shropshire!

Had a brief window of sunshine yesterday so went to see how the woodland and wetland were doing.

Well. that's a couple of meters deeper than usual!

There is some interesting growth in the woodland on dead wood.

Sunshine highlighted the interesting colours and detail.
Back to very soggy today.

Genuine antique stool?

My first school woodwork project was this 16 joint stool with a seagrass top. This was in 1962 which makes it a genuine antique at 50 years old!

 Amazingly, the underside still shows the original red and green of the seagrass.
