    Wonderful bit of hedge weaving, BigBilly. A great deal of work went into that & is a terrific example of craftmanship. Do hope it will cope with the drastic pruning it has had.

    Thank you for posting these beautiful pics of the Gloucestershire countryside, BB. It is beautiful.

    They thin out a lot of the hedge Bruiser, but the ones that are selected to be kept and woven in, are only cut partially through so that they keep growing.
    If you look at picture two on the right just round the corner you can see the growth made since it was layed a year ago.
