Has Anybody Seen My Secateurs?


Last September himself and I holidayed in North Wales. I hurt my knee not long before we went and was in horrible pain. As the week went on I had to use a stick to hurtle myself about. However we still managed to visit the highest garden open to the public in North Wales, which I wrote about here and homeward bound we made haste for Powis Castle and its gardens. Here I hopped about and imagined the work involved in maintaining these hedges to the highest standard!

Hurry over to ABC Wednesday now for more on the letter H!


  1. and I read that the gardens are Henrietta's Herbert's creation.
    This is unbelievable!

  2. I cannot imagine having to hobble about to trim those hedges!

  4. Wow...that is GREEN. Nice hedges.

  5. What a gorgeous view. I bet those hedges take some keeping in shape.

  6. It looks just like a green rocky outcrop doesn't it. Hope the knee is feeling a bit better.

  7. Magnificent. Hope your knee is better, but that shot is spectacular. Are those large hedges or moss covered rocks?

  8. Dear me. I too thought it was a strangely green rocky outcrop. Keeping it in shape must be a nightmare. Very impressive though.

  9. Hooray! Google has finally stopped telling me that your blog has been invaded by a virus and I shouldn't visit... That is an awesome hedge, one I would love to look at but hate to be responsible for.

  10. Beautiful, beautiful scenery - and, like Janet, I'm glad the notice has gone and I can visit again!


  11. Amazing image!

    Seem to have become addicted to allotment blogs, and yours is a really interesting read
