We have a lot of Hawthorn in our very small garden, over 100 foot of the stuff marking our boundary on one side and it is a complete bastard to keep in check, it grows at a phenomenal pace and has inch long spikes all over it!
We where originally going to removed the hedge last summer but other jobs and the rubbish weather got in the way, so this week we had my Mum staying with us, what better thing to ask a guest to do!
This was the hedge last Sunday morning...
I love Slow Worms, they are so beautiful, we have quite a lot in our area and I have seen them on numerous occasions, but never so many together.
So tomorrow, weather permitting we will be getting the poles up of the fruit frame and hopefully planting my fanned fruit trees. We'll see how it does but I am beyond excited to finally be getting this little project completed...then its back to tiling!
