A little light pruning

Sunday afternoon and what’s nicer than a swim and a lounge in the shade under a large umbrella?

Well, apparently it’s being encouraged to climb up inside a very large hedge to prune the top.

The hedge is a behemoth which we’ve been trying to tame for the last two years. We’ve cut it back considerably but with renewed vigour it comes back with a vengeance.

So with secateurs in hand, I spent a couple of less relaxing hours climbing like a monkey before finally emerging hot, scratched and bloody.

Not sure there was much of a before and after moment…
