Beech Hedge

MY dead and decaying Escalonia hedge finally found it's way to the wood chipper. I replaced it with Green Beech which (so far at least) grows fairly well in my garden.

Real season for hedging! Green beech is so much faster than copper!

Yes yes yes! Fagus everytime. And green before copper most times! Anyway old escallonia has sticky leaves even if it didnt die after every hard frost. Has the hedge started to green yet?

And have just viewed you photos and am in awe at its precision and orderliness! Liked the aerial ones too. Were usually so into looking at the ground from out knees or bent back that its nice to soar like a bird!

Thanks for the comments,Scrubber. Actually, my garden is orderly on some ocassions but (like most gardens) is in need of attention most of the time. Your own garden looks quite impressive also. I'm currently training for my Private Pilots Licence, a life long passion, so I get the occassional chance for a bit of aerial photography.
