About my Hedge... 'My' is not quite correct, its a shared hedge and my neighbours prefer to keep it that way, fortunately its on the north side of my garden and does not take any sun from me. I have over the years systematically removed at least 20 feet of the top this hedge.

On another Note I do all my nude gardening at the bottom of the garden where it is fenced on four sides Rolling Eyes I just have to watch out for squirrels looking for nuts.

Ah that's right, I remember you telling me you were in the Tufty Club. Ya know, I always maintained that road safety stuff was just a front for something a lot darker!


Some years ago, when I was Training Manager at Glasgow Parks dept, we sent two apprentices off on a week's work placement to a garden in Malmesbury. Turned out the owners were naturists and spent as much of their day wandering about (and doing the garden work) in the buff as possible. One of my apprentices was too stupid to notice; the other one didn't return from the experiece! He spent three happy years working there and went from a being a very awkward and shy 17 year old to being super confident.

Can't be all bad this noodie stuff.

Hey Tony! How about making Burrs a nudist event in November?

Having been health and safety trained, I wince at the thought. Not from a visual perspective but from a, powertool versus dangly bits scenario affraid There is also the issue around the yamadori Hawthorn. Having seen the way Sheep get tangled in the stuff, this could be painful if not quite embarrasing' when the emergency services are called out to cut a hapless victim from the thorns. I was going to mention about Hawthorn and the abundance of pricks, but thought this might be taking it too far Very Happy

Good job as well. Here is a hedge in one of my gardens. Luckily I don't have to cut it.

Quite possibly. There was a programme on TV about them 8 years ago or so. In the programme he was also shown driving a mini-excavator in the buff.

But always tastefully depicted behind some strategically placed buxus or other plant. That last one's not the word I wrote originally.

It's called Abbey House Gardens. Ooooh look - it's open to the public from the weekend of Joy of Bonsai onwards. And only a few miles from Bath!

Could the Saturday night entertainment be about to take a new direction?

We had the heaviest frost of the winter so far last night. And 15 miles down the road at my friend's house there is a carpet of snow not unlike yours. Not sure which I prefer, but really would ultimately prefer a nice wee burst of sunshine and warmth. Prefereably from now until about December.

Them lil animules have got it right - hibernation is a darn fine idea! I think it should be mandatory.
