We didn't finish the job yesterday, the bonfire from Tuesday was well and truly soaked through after 16 mm of rain overnight, and it took a long time to get it going again. Eventually we were able to burn up all the rubbish and then we started work on more clearing: mostly 'pig' holly which spreads rapidly by root suckers, horrible stuff to get rid of and it does not even have any berries. We'll have another session later today but there is much more work to do than we anticipated when we started. It looks as though it might be dry today which will make a pleasant change............
