24: Hedgerows

So where did I leave you last time? Oh, yes – I was about to do my preparation for going back to The Day Job tomorrow. And, am I? Well, yes I am doing some prep, but – it’s not for my employer!

And, is that a bad thing? No! Daylight’s calling and I’m slipping out of my cave for another adventure.

And just look at what I’ve found!


So much to see, within half-a-mile of my cave door – and so much more effective than anti-depressant drugs!

So much ethereal beauty – in all shapes and forms, and all rooted into the strangest of places!

Let’s save the treasures in the hedgerows – before they fade away forever!


I’d like to lie down in this bed of daisies, on my local bypass, but there’s a fair amount of traffic whizzing past so, in a rare moment of timidity, I decide to deprive the drivers of a rare treat!


Needs must, though, and I’m now back in front of my laptop, having momentary thoughts about doing some prep for tomorrow. Facebook gets into my head and sends me off track. For some reason, I’m perusing the local gossip page. And, for some reason, some lady is complaining about the lack of pruning out and about the town, particularly with regards to the kerb-sides and hedgerows of our suburban housing estates …




So glad the council are SO neglectful!

I guess we all see what we want to see … and the anti-depressant drugs probably do help (just a little bit)!

P.S. Just getting on to the day-job prep!

P.P.S. I you follow Mrs Hinch on Instagram, she’s giving away some very exciting cleaning products. Unfortunately, she doesn’t appear to be offering to come and do any demonstrations!
