|A border created from where there was once hedge|
|Bare but tamed!|
A dull and raw Saturday but milder than of late and much happening in the garden. First up was trimming a Yew topiary heart outside the kitchen window. It needed reducing in width so as not to obstruct the view our little valley. Next up was the Pyracantha on the conservatory wall. This was in need of more major reshaping and trimming. This meant a very careful clear up with so many vicious thorns! Lastly a more major job - thinning the nothernmost hedge behind the vegetable patch. Over time, it had been allowed to get ideas above its station and was just too wide. It was cut back from the retaining sleeper wall and sloped back. The overall effect giving a much more spacious feel to that area. It should look very different in spring when it reverts to its green livery!
