I started on this hedge yesterday, and was even out at 10pm last night doing a bit of trimming. I have all this to do, twice over, as it goes in an L shape across the garden and down the side. Last year I thought I might treat myself to an electric trimmer, but I just can't bring myself to buy one. Apart from using the electricity, the bloomin noise they make is awfull.
So I am plodding on with my trusty shears. Free to use, and so quiet I can hear the birds twittering. Mind you I think they have all fallen off their perch in this heat, ha ha. Job will get done, just takes a bit longer.
I'm just having ten minutes before I venture outside again, and to let my lunch go down. Here is my smiley meal for today. I must say, I think I have excelled myself here. Although my salad leaves are dwindling I now have a crop of spinach leaves ready, whoopeee. There is a wholemeal bread roll cut in half and spread with Value soft cheese spread, for the eyes. Half a tin of sweetcorn, another cheap nectarine chopped up, and used for the eyes and nose, I will get through them eventually, ha ha. Pickled onions, and blackcurrants from the garden, for the mouth.
