Finally some photos! This is the before picture of the brambles, complete with halfashed. Impressive, isn't it? I think it's a testament to my hurricane-sized ignorance that this seemed like the perfect plot to me. La-di-da, hello brambles, hello sky, I can't really see you lalala, you're actually a lawn with a pond and some cast-iron furniture, tra-la-la.
Ok, one photo. But it's a start. I never suggested that I was any better at blogging than I am at gardening.
