Slogging on

Not a very interesting day, but a productive one.  A long-overdue prune of the front of a laurel hedge this morning, need to take a few feet off the height too, but that can wait.

I don't seem to have taken many photos today, but the laurel now has a really, really thick mulch, and whilst I was doing that Management was removing the old windbreak netting behind the hedge.  It has been there since January 2013, and it was time it came down.





Before I could make much progress on moving yesterday's bark chip Simon arrived with another load, bless him (I think).

The now compulsory photo of a disembodied leg being unloaded along with the chippings:



If you think this is a lot, there's now even more  . . . at 4.00pm he arrived with "just a little half load from our final clearing up".  Holy heck, if this is what he thinks is little - I will take a picture tomorrow.  We are both slightly relieved he will not be supplying any more until next Friday at the earliest because it's going to take me the best part of the coming week to shift what we've got.



We decided to leave the pond for today; our 'excuse' was that the water was still muddy from yesterday and I wanted to be able to see the bottom of the pond - in truth I was just not in the mood to get freezing cold and probably wet.

  1. It sounds like you've had another very productive day, maybe have a day off over the weekend? I like your mention of the disembodied leg, that really made me laugh :-)

  2. Very wise to stay out of the pond for now, I think. Do have that day off to to refresh yourselves before tackling the mound of bark again, you're going to be exhausted.

    1. Thank you Eileen. It is a bit unbelievable that I have had five consecutive days in the garden, and whilst I am delighted about that, I am tired! Today is a rest day and I intend to do not much more than putz around the house and relax :-)

  3. That’s as big g a little ad as we have delivered on our site for everyone. We can ask for more when it runs out though.

    1. I guess I can ask for more too, I just have to wait until the tree surgeon is doing a job that involves chipping.
