Extreme gardening

One of the nice things about moving in to the brand new house fourteen years ago was that the front garden had been landscaped for us.

Since then nature has done its work and some of the once small plants have subtly grown in to monsters and have taken over large swathes of the borders.

Last weekend their reign of terror ended.

The piles of butchered plants that you can see on the drive had, mere moments before been encamped on the flower beds.

The vicious hacking, sawing and pruning (I enjoyed all that!) reclaimed about 1 metre of the bed across the whole width of the garden.

All we need to do now is get rid of all that garden rubbish and get some new plants to fill the new spaces.
