the colour of November #2 – wood for the winter

with 7 comments

November in New Brunswick can be bleak.  Before the snow is on the ground, the colours are dominated by browns and greys.  Like the browns and greys in our woodpiles.

We have several woodpiles.  These include ranks of large round wood, cut and split into stove lengths, and stored in our shed.  We also have spruce and fir kindling, chopped fine to start the fire.  In the garage is a pile of smaller round wood, mostly the limbs trimmed from our maple trees.  This smaller wood will be the base for our fires, a way for the flames to step from the kindling to the bigger wood.
