Warmth ...

Of an open fire ...

Despite my best efforts with a chainsaw, and plenty of advice from the neighbours, I admit defeat. I spent quite some time sawing up olive wood in the street, but the roots removed the chain from the saw.

Its been rather cold today and the old house has cooled down considerably. So this evening i set about lighting the main fire place and getting it up to temperature.

A couple of hours later and at times a rather smoky room but three of the large roots had been reduced to red embers, and the house was warm again ...
