Garden-Tips-For-January and FebruaryNow that the sun is shining and yes, the weather is quite mild at the moment, you may be thinking of getting out into the garden to ready it for the spring.

Wood Stove or Open Fire?

Wood Stove or Open Fire
It’s been relatively mild this winter so far in Ireland as it’s been wet rather than frosty and unfortunately many people have experienced flooding. Having an alternative source of heat to electric, oil and gas can be a godsend at times ( I remember the oil running out when we were snowed in once, thank goodness for the fires).

We have one of each  - a wood stove in the kitchen and an open fire in the living room.
