Another job done that I didn’t have to do myself. I’m slowly learning that I can’t do it all. Dan the hedge man and his helper did a fantastic job cutting our hedges and ivy today. Here they are all overgrown this morning…
The law says that if they find a bird’s nest they can’t cut through it so he always looks out for these… and guess what… he found one with tiny eggs in. So, we have a bit of ivy still there (slightly higher than the rest), as a home for the birds ready for them to hatch.
It’s too high up for me to see the nest but we know it’s there.
The sun came out for the first time this evening ready for me to take some ‘after’ photos of the work done today.
We are really pleased with the progress in our garden today and it makes it look more spacious front and back. I might just have to get out there this week and tidy the borders and plant the tray of fuchsias that I bought today.
After cutting the hedges and ivy, the guys took all the remains away with them for recycling and even took a pile of garden rubbish that had been my ‘dumping ground’ for a while. This has given me an extra space to plant a few things. Very exciting!
Being recycling day tomorrow I spent half an hour folding and stacking all of the cardboard from the clearing that I’ve been doing over the last two weeks. The amount that I put out for collection this evening has made me feel very proud of myself.
Such neat hedges. Glad the birds are safe. You certainly have a lot of recycling. I can only put out what is in my rolling blue bin and the cover has to close, so I need to keep up. Although starting in July the town has moved to recycling every week instead of every other.
Thanks, I keep looking at the straight edges. That’s good that they’re going to be taking your recycling more often
