Branch swirl…

A swirling mass of branches.




Tree pruning…

Major garden progress over the last couple of days…well, maybe not major but it’s a good start. We’ve been focussing on the house for a while now but this is the right time of year to prune fruit trees, before they start to bud in late Winter / early Spring.

Bit of a severe hair cut for the apple tree and Elder Berry tree, but it should promote a lot of new growth lower on the tree, which will make it easier to pick. You can just see Jamie in one of the pics holding the orange-handled branch loppers.

Also going to have to look at the fence this year as it’s doing it’s best to imitate a certain tower in Pisa!
