Welcome to the weekly round up and the links to the Smorgasbord posts you might have missed.This week David has been swinging through the trees in the garden. Not doing a ‘Tarzan’ but wearing a hard hat and safety harness. He is removing some old and dead trees and also some that have grown too tall and are causing severe cracks in the garden wall. If you have read his father’s memoir Tales from the Garden earlier today you will know that Geoff was part of a logging team in his late teens and the skills that he learnt he passed on to David. He had plenty of practice in our home in Spain which had a lot of trees that needed regular attention and having heard the prices for removing a tree by a Tree Surgeon we are saving enough for a holiday later in the year.
