Tackling the Trees

Our work on the hedges is continuing apace.  Our focus has shifted though – the hedge behind the stables had started to grow a bit close to the buildings and needed looking at.  Then a very old tree stump collapsed against the wall of Cookster’s stable and we really did have to do something about it.

It is huge and very heavy so had to be cut up into smaller sections before we could move it.  That was pretty time consuming and in fact we still haven’t finished – my Dad cut off enough so we could shift it away from the wall but it blunted the chainsaw blade and we have had to leave the rest for another day.

I had the far less impressive but very satisfying job of pulling all the brambles out of an elder tree.  It is so good when you can actually see the difference you are making but it really is a never ending job.  You turn around and more have sprouted out of nowhere!

It does mean that we spot the most beautiful things though – just look at these tiny little toadstools I found.  They are so pretty!
