If you tell enough stories, perhaps the moral will show up.


Happy Christmas

This hedging porn looks a bit Christmassy so it seems appropriate. Both taken on the solstice, truly just an hour before the thaw turned the rime to drips.

The hedge is my current work in progress -- you might just see I've reached the limt of my dewiring, and as the ground is too hard for stakes, I spent the time peeling back the stockfence and tidying up.

If you think the stakes look a bit dodgy, you're right. I salvaged them out of some chesnut paling lattice. Years old, but still hard enough to drive with a hammer, once I've opened up the ground with the iron. Almost any stake makes the job much easier.

The second picture looks very frigid indeed, but that's what happens if you go outside with the white balance set to flourescent...
