Well, if ya gotta cut your hedge it's the only way.
Substantial progress made this morning before rain stopped slashing (or started slashing, depending on your point of view).
Here is BEFORE, so you can see it was deffo overgrown.
And here is AFTER, much better I'm sure you'll agree
And here is WHERE IT WENT.
I'm sure you'll also agree that this is but a problem postponed. That's because it's in the [currently empty] manure bin. But that is destined to be refilled in October so all the prunings will have to be out by then. I feel a Mother Of All Bonfires coming on but that, in turn, will have to wait until the beans and courgettes are finished because that's the only space I've got available to have one. So this all feels like an appointment with MOAB in October. Yippee!
And finally, the door to the Secret Garden is now visible again.
