As you may have read I started on the big garden clear up on Wednesday.
This photo shows what it was like along the back wall with brambles growing amongst the Gooseberry bushes and dead grass tangled in them.I got as far as pruning the goosebery and blackcurrant bushed plus removing the brambles right along the back and up the side to the house.The grass is still there.

The rain that came yesterday lasted until this morning.The sun has appeared now but it will be a day or so before the mini ponds I now have to drain so no work today.
In this photo you can see the off cuts lying around or floating waiting to be removed before I can move on,it is like this all the way along the side of the garden to the house as well as on the other side of the path so any hope of dormant wild flower seeds has gone methinks.
