Better boundaries

We finally finished the hedge cutting, we’d saved the hardest till last.  The large laurel hedge between us and the neighbours is always difficult, involving ladders, precarious balancing and a lot of clippings to collect for the bonfire.  We get access to cut the neighbours’ side too, it’s a couple of days work but it’s all done now.

Our side
Their side

We had an easy day yesterday the sun was hot so we sat out in the afternoon and lit the stove in the evening, it cools down quickly once the sun sets which makes for cosy nights.

Today was back to work for MrFF, he has been applying a coat of repairing screed to the wall capping before he installs the wire mesh to the new fence posts. It’s making a huge difference, Grigio and I were out admiring his work earlier, I’m not sure if Grigio isn’t planning to have a stroll over it later to add her prints, she did seem very interested.


  1. Lovely photographs. Are those nerines?
    If you have half an hour to spare Thelma (North Stoke on my side bar) has a lovely UTube with two girls touring Cumbria and Skipton and Haworth and talking about yarn and knitting - and visiting a yarn fair. You might enjoy it.

  2. A job well done - a pat on the back to MrFF. You will enjoy the benefits for years to come. Enjoy!

  3. Hot sun? Laurel hedge? Flowers on full Bloom? Ha, in my dreams, we've had frosts (-5C), snow, sleet and rain. And frost again, and then some rain. Gosh I'm happy (=jealous) for you, autunm in Italy...
    No, it's nice to know everything is ok.

  4. I do hope that Grigio left her autograph! Our old cats Henry and Stanley did the same thing when we were having an extension built, but thankfully only on the foundations!
