trimming the hedge

Dave was trimming our conifer hedge, approx 25m long x 9m high, but was happy to take time out for a portrait shot for me in his work gear. (He didn't say "I've got to put my lipstick on, take bits of conifer out of my hair......")

It was a hot day for such work and he had a lad to help with the clearing-up; his partner, Simon, unfortunately fell off this very ladder ( a bit taller than the hedge) and broke his leg last week.
Lovely shots of these working lads. Poor Simon, that's not good news when it's your livelihood.

Yes, Ray wanted to do it but I persuaded him to get the experts in. If I have trouble in the future I shall quote you!

Bep, thanks. Is it stifling hot where you live too?

Nice portrait of Dave the HedgeTrimmer, Hazel. I guess you don't get any nesting birds in the conifer hedge and maybe it doesn't offer birds suitable shelter? If so maybe it's time to get rid of it.☹️

No nesting birds; good for human borders/privacy....
