A good couple of days. Yesterday afternoon Simon arrived with a full trailer, the contents of which needed getting rid of and I was the lucky winner. A very generous quantity of freshly chipped birch which was the waste from whatever tree surgery job he was doing nearby.
He was back again at lunchtime today to tidy up a couple of our larger silver birch trees.
It didn't take long, and there was more chipped bark as an end of job bonus 😀
All I had to do today was stand around agreeing (or disagreeing) which tree limb got cut and where, but my hard work starts tomorrow - all the bark has to be moved but before that I have the miserable job of relocating many of the leaves with which I'd mulched the bulb bed. Those I put down last week stayed put, but the ones which were spread at the end of January were "relocated" during the very high winds and have decided they are happier making a mess of the paths and the vegetable area 😒
