    At least you've got some green stuff. Mine's gone! I got so fed up with the weeds, I weedkillered everything in the flowerbeds apart from a couple of tall roses. Still got lawns to mow though.

    Fighting a losing battle with stuff coming through from the rain forest next door, every handful of stuff I picked up had brambles in it, some of it like barbed wire.

    Sorry Roy, I thought 'Conifer corner' looked better in the 'before' picture. Looks more like a 'Muller Corner now. Maybe it just needs a few days to grow into its new look.

    Sometimes things look better with some growth. A few years ago I worked with a young lad who had this weird hairstyle which made his head the shape of a lightbulb, and I constantly took the mickey. One day he came into work having shaved it all off. And you know what? His head was still the shape of a lightbulb. I felt so sorry for him I never took the mickey again, apart from criticising his sawing skills by asking him if he was sure he was left handed and had he ever tried using his right hand.

    He grew into quite an angry young man. I think it was more to do with the poor wages than his head shape.

    Since the council brought a fee in for collection of garden waste, what I can't take to the tip gets burnt! (bugger the neighbours )

    This is the current burn pile. About half a ton! Mostly Ivy chopped off adjoining walls and fences. I may start on it this afternoon.
