Late August Trees

Still acting as a prop…

Nothing dramatically different, it seems – apart from the hedges.

This one is already getting a little dusty.

Same 5 trees, same two flowerbeds…

Two more interesting facts about the gardens this month though. First, it seems we were justified in sticking out for replacing the dying section of the privet hedge with a mixed, woodland type of hedge. It has taken 4 years to thicken up – but just look at the difference between the boring, monolithic privet and the new planting, which includes yew, holly, field maple, spindle and hawthorn.

Second point of interest – the foxes have suddenly gone crazy! In the last couple of weeks they have dug up over 20 holes. Some are deep channels, others have been abandoned part way through, for no very obvious reason. The grass is now a total mess. Just look at the chalk this one has excavated – I wish I could catch them at it, must be quite a sight.

  1. Lovely park … lots of green which I miss always šŸ™‚ I am quite surprised that those could be fox earths so near to the houses and so many of them. They could have been digging for worms which is part of their diet but those holes look a bit deep for that. Curious LOL! Keep well Amanda x
