An afternoon of wandering round the beautiful English countryside. Summer is blissful isn't it. I'm quite envious of the people who live in lovely Cotswold villages. All that beautiful old stone and roses round the door.
I saw a lovely evergreen that had been cut into a nice dome.
I have an evergreen by my front gate that is fairly unruly and is taking off at the top. I'm wondering if I can persuade it to turn into something similar. I guess I start by cutting off all the lower branches. Not sure if I'm brave enough, there's a high chance it will look utterly ridiculous instead of elegant and classy. Although of course that might be more apt. Any suggestions or advice? I'm very tempted to start meddling with it. More sawing. It occurs to me that it might be a slippery slope. Nothing will be safe.
Wishing all a good summer Sunday. CJ xx
