Morning one and all. Not a bad day here- a tiny bit of frost earlier I think but it's rapidly going so I should get more hedge in. Managed to avoid being stabbed by the thorns yesterday so I hope I can maintain that today.

Don't work too hard KEF!

Not caught up with all the posts yet. Like your new avatar Dove -think I might find a festive one in December. Glad the shoulder's ok. 

Gardengirl- yes- most of the hedge is for round the front garden. It's a good 'stabby' one - Blackthorn!

Hope you're ok Stacey. Always a worry when you have to wait for results.

Thanks to everyone who missed me. Very kind  

You can't get rid of me that easily you know

Awaiting dinner. A dozen bits of hedging in - only 88 to go....

Roots are a bit bigger than I was expecting so had to dig out more turf on inside of fence. Good healthy looking whips though which is good. Supposed to be half decent tomorrow so I'll hopefully get more done. Was dark when I came in.

Have a good night everyone.

Lovely James 

Took this pic of my car roof from an upstairs window the other day after a frosty night:

My new whips are blackthorn - if the plebs round here won't keep their children/pets out of my garden - I'll keep them out 

Cold wet and windy here today but frost tonight so if the ground's not too solid tomorrow I'll get some in. Glad I stocked up on compost. My own isn't quite ready for use unfortunately but it's looking good.

What's your prezzie Dove? Something expensive I hope

Hello all - I've not gone anywhere just been busy. Internet connection's been a bit flaky last few days so gave up for a while 

My hedge has arrived so I may be gone for some time - 100 whips to put in...

Will try and catch up on posts sometime!

HAve a good day everyone
