The colourful months of October and November are almost upon us, the trees can be felled again, log piles stocked up.
After the buzzing chainsaws are finished the logs in the forest are neatly stacked, for local fires.
Giant pencils that need sharpening
Did you know that the pencil sharpener was invented by a French man called Bernard Lassimone, receiving French patent number 2444 in 1828.
Holding onto colour
Some French words
To have a waist like a wasp is taille
To carve, sharpen or prune is tailler
A pencil sharpener is taille-crayons
