We have just been doing our annual tree felling exerise on waste ground to the side of our house. The garden is south facing and would have sun all day if the trees were not there so we trim branches off them each year as the council will do nothing. The down side is that we now have loads of tree to take to the council tip. The upside is that the cats get new scratching posts!!
A couple of years ago we went to Egypt on holiday and the hotel we stayed in had a lovely
cacti garden in the grounds. This is my version
which I made as soon as we got back home.
