Great to see your garden recovering :)

My garden has been whacked twice now and it has bounced back each time like yours (with a lot of TLC and money ;))

Fingers crossed for a mild winter!

nice pics 8)

and you seem to have cheeky swines living next door just like we do :x except ours had heavy closeboard cladding fixed on their side of our fence and 3 washing lines tied to our posts which weakened them and brought ours down to pieces. unfortunately it fell on our side so they assumed who's ever side it fell on must pay to put a new one up!! :evil:
