Not a clue where to start!

Yes, start small, don't clear more than you can keep clear or more, different, weeds will move in. Mowing and strimming keeps weeds down and stops them seeding, digging stirs up more weed seeds to germinate.


Not sure why you want rid of the hawthorns, they're not poisonous and great for wildlife.

Binoculars Topbird? We were out there in the persistence. I suggested postponing til tomorrow but was over-ruled. Probably best, another frost tonite would have wiped out even more flowers.
