Cutting the Boxus / Coupe le boxus!!

 
Its that time of the year again when the new growth on the box has turned a darker shade of green and the shaggy locks must go! It is not a task we take on easily as it is messy and time consuming BUT they look so great after all is complete...it is very satisfying...
 By chance a few days ago I pulled out the electric hedge trimmer and blew off the dust...I brought it a few years ago hoping to make the box trimming task a little easier but abandoned it after I cut through two extension cords!!
Mike now has embraced the tool and off he went...I am a very happy women as I have been doing it all by hand for the last few years and it is very very hard to keep on top of it with all the other madness that goes on in this house...so here we are...all trimmed, slicked back and styled once again!!
These guys are going to have to wait till after the weekend!
By the by we had some very cool last minute Italian guests last night who sip, taste, photograph and write about food and wine....lucky them...

Check out their blog...it is gorgeous! They may even feature us at some point as the camera was clicking....will let you know...

Oh your garden is won-der-ful! You must be related.. my sister - your second cousin - put her hedge trimmer through the electric cord. Once, mind you! You don't do things by halves! Love the photos.
