Yesterday was Pruning Day.

                             

Good Afternoon, when I closed my entry yesterday I said Stuart and I were going to trim our conifers in the afternoon. After some lunch we ventured into the garden to get the job done. As you can see from the photographs they are quite tall and in need of a haircut. We keep them as they shelter the garden from the north wind which whips down our driveway into our garden and they do make a big difference. I have not been able to show you how Stuart does the top of the trees as I am hanging on to the step ladder very tightly. As you can see after we had finished it made a big difference and it lets me see out a lot better from the kitchen window. They look a bit bare for a while but they soon recover from their haircut. There is no pictures of me as I was like nothing you’ve have seen before with a scarf covering my head and face to keep me free of anymore midgie bites. I have had to take antihistamines as the bites on my head have been so bad and I did not want anymore added. Mission accomplished I headed for a well deserved shower as I had pine bits in place I should not have had. There was so much came off the trees we filled the brown wheelie bin we have for garden refuse and had to push it down to get it all in. I think that’s all the pruning done now for this year thank goodness only some bedding to pull out once its past and then we can put the garden to bed for the winter.

Today we were out for our usual Saturday morning coffee and this afternoon Stuart is watching World Cycling Championships from Italy me I’m half watching and shouting for Nicole Cook (remember her from the Olympic games) Yes yes she has done it she it WORLD CHAMPION. WELL DONE NICOLE. What a double for her Olympic Champion and World Champion in two months what a girl. The race was 138 klm.

What more can I say today Wales will be so proud of their girl. Till next time….. Love
