I shredded the phlomis. It reminded me why I hate the thing. Tiny hairs all over like itching powder. I ended up with kitchen roll and a scarf over my face to stop me inhaling. With ear defenders on I must have looked quite a sight. Still, scarf and ear defenders matched!!!!
Then the window cleaner turned up, and I borrowed his ladders to get on the garage roof and cut down as much apricot as I could with loppers. The thick bits need a chainsaw but that can be done later. I've put most of that through the shredder as well, and filled another builders bag with shreddings. The first one is steaming nicely.
I itch all over now so I'm going to have a long bath and wash my hair. Might see you later.
Panda and friend, have a good time at the seaside. Don't wear out the donkeys, it's too hot for them.
