The sweetest little flowers on the Hebe, before I cut it down yesterday. I’m not as shocked by the gap as I thought and have decided that I shouldn’t procrastinate about doing these things! Just do it! Carpe diem and all that! Have a fab Monday flowers 🌸 #mondaymotivation #hebe #tinytreasures #carpediem #seizetheday #lifeistooshort

#after Eek! 😬 there’s a mighty big gap! It was about 7’ high and probably almost as wide! Was dreading doing it but actually, apart from the fact I can see far too much of the manky old fence now, I’m quite happy. I can now get behind it to plant my Rosa Glauca and hopefully the poor snowball Bush (those twigs on the left! 😂) will flourish now it has some space and light! #dontpanicmrmainwaring 27.01.19

@rachelbrooks I love the imperfectness of the wood fence with its overlapping boards. What an awesome backdrop to show off beautiful flowers.

It's not manky, it's 'aged' or 'weathered' and there's lots of growing space now. 🌹🌹🌹

It’s not Bunny I’m worried about Carol...it’s Bobbin. Wait til he turns up in the morning 😱 he’s not gonna be happy. He liked perching on the lower branches! He’s still got a little stump to sit on though! 😂 @carolgs

Ah thanks @ukjohnny I would love a proper camera (not that I'd know what to with it!😂) but quite pleased with how most pics come out just using the camera phone. I love seeing all the wildlife and close up pics - gives a whole different perspective and the intricacy of the plants amazes me 🙂
