The above picture shows some of my shrubs during the Summer and this is what I am again looking forward to. I am a strong believer in hard pruning at this time of year, except for the flowering shrubs that are pruned immediately after flowering.
So I am afraid the spring cleaning has been put on hold for the next rainy day which is forecast for the day after tomorrow. After all the rain our garden has been under water. This always amazes me as we live on a hill. Where we have been trampling on the wet ground while working part of the lawn is at present a sea of mud. Looks horrible but as Alan keeps saying, "It will come back" and yes it does recover. So at present my choice seems to be "dust" or "mud".
