Tree Huggers

We finally managed to complete the landscaping of the hill at the weekend and, you must admit, it does look quite striking. 
The first thing we did was to re-erected the wooden fence and kissing gate and then we planted some hedging along a part of its length.
Next job was to plant a few colourful trees which, I must admit, some of us thought might look a bit out of place. However, once they were in situ they certainly had the effect of lifting the hill and making it stand out whereas, previously, the trees we had placed there temporarily just made the whole area look rather dark and flat.
The final job was to put a seat half way up the hill and another one inside the folly at the top of the hill. Each seat is occupied by a couple holding hands and embracing as they take in the view.
Hmm, make me wish that I could take a stroll there myself!
