Luckily, one of my ladies was there to make the final inspection on my little tractor/mower to make sure everything was safe and in good working order.
Hmmmm.... too many leaves on the footplates...
...the seat seems the right height...
...yep - that's the right height for cutting grass...
...and everything looks ok down here too!
After she was satisfied the everything was to her high standards, she hopped off and let me continue.
I find Spiders fascinating - horrible - but fascinating. How they spin that brilliant web, with such engineering skill is just so fantastic.
I managed to find a nice one, and took a couple of shots to show both sides of the little thing.
I didn't realise he was having a little snack untill i went to his underside - and couldn't help stay watching him for a while.
I also cleared some growth around the bottom of this tree, cutting back brambles and removing low branches.
Then I removed a few dead branches, and almost dead branches from this tree. There was a low hanging, long branch on the right of the tree as you look at this photo, which I removed as it wasn't too healthy, and was starting to foul in the nearby apple tree.
Then lastly yesterday, I trimmed approx 60M of hedge, side and top (although I haven't taken a photo of the finished hedge) and so all I need to do now is the part of the hedge on the roadside.
Because the hedge has grown so high (approx 9 or 10 foot) I had to stand on the seat of the tractor - even with my mighty KM90's long reach and bendiness, I just needed that extra length to get to the top of the hedge!
