The gardens have really taken off in the last few weeks. The trees have burst with new leaves and the bushy things are looking very green. I had 2 lonely daffodils brighten the front garden for a week or so and now have a row of Iris's. They are really bright and vibrant. The roses out the front are almost ready to burst into a mass of flowers too.
With all the new growth the tree out the front was heading towards the power lines - so I called the council - well "Shire" actually - which is what they call the council here. We had got a pamphlet in our Rates pack saying to call them if our tree was growing into the power lines. I called on a Monday and on the following Thursday they were there to trim the tree's - I was quite impressed with that response. So here's a pic of the guy trimming. While he did it - I quickly printed some pics out for him and gave them to him. I think he was chuffed!!
