Happy 4th.......

........... to any readers from across the pond. Steven went off to day care suitably dressed this morning.

We had an early start this morning when three hefty young men arrived to turn this.......


...........into this............

Can you spot what has gone? Yes, the very large buddleia which was blocking my view is no more. I can see the Clee hills again, (when it isn't misty or raining.)The butterflies will miss it but I won't, and I can see a beautiful rose rambling along the trellis. Probably an English rose from David Austin. who is just down the road.

BTW, does anyone else get reminded of Monty Python when they encounter Tree Surgeons? NonPC now I suppose, but I do get the urge to start singing!

I like the new look! If the trellis gets the sun how about a passion flower? I think they look incredible. In fact, you can probably have both! I bought my mom and dad a "Wolverhampton Wanderers" rose from David Austin for their wedding anniversary. Appropriate don't you think :0)

Looks like Steven had a gret day. :-)
Lovely view - I didn't realise you could see as far as the Clee Hills from there. Now, as you say, you just need the clouds to hold off for a while..

It's great when you hoik something like that out - everything else seems to sigh a sigh of relief! I've at last posted pictures of your wonderful baby clothes on my blog. Thanks once again.
