I had some pop up this year in my Wilderness border behind the pond - goodness knows where they came from, and they didn't really look right there, but I didn't have they heart to pull them up until they'd gone over 

New GW...??

Have a good journey Chicky 

Have a good weekend DD - hope you have a chance to put your feet up 

The dry spell didn't last long - we've got that heavy drizzle that soaks you through - that's going to do the front lawn some good 

ID please.

Good morning Joyce and everyone else as you arrive  G'day Pat 

Weve had some rain overnight , but it's dry at the moment, mainly overcast but with brightness in the west. I think I should net the pond today.

You needn't worry - hawthorn can cope with any amount of brutal pruning. Farmers hack them virtually to the ground with tractor- driven flail bushwhacked and the hedges spring back up again. They're tough as old boots. 

Whats more concerning is that your neighbour did something as radical as this without talking to you first. Was it done in innocence with good intentions or is this action the result of a dispute about the hedgerow?

I just pick and bring them indoors and lay them on a tray in the windowsill - they ripen within a few days.
