Pimp my poplar!

The fifty six poplars which surround three sides of the garden were getting a bit untidy round the base of the trunks.

When we were out walking at the end of last year we saw these poplars, trimmed round the base and looking so much better than our scruffy ones.

So over the past couple of days Colin has been cutting off the dead branches to tidy things up a bit whilst I took the branches to our bonfire, which has burned now for over 24 hours!

The result was a much neater appearance and more space for the hammock to swing.

Yes 56 of em... All circa 25 to 28 mtrs high. The dead branches do make good kindling for lighting the fire in winter.

Looks like a great place to 'hang' out and look out over the fields :)
