Capturing the Light. Getting rid of tall conifers.

For nearly 11 years my Courtyard Garden has been overshadowed by conifers that reached over 25 feet.

They were oppressive and stopped the overhead sun getting into my garden.

This week the were removed.

Of course this was done after the bird-nesting season had ended.

Other deciduous trees were located behind them .

These will provided shelter for the birds.

The colour in Autumn will be something worth seeing.

Winter light will help us during the long nights ahead.

Next year the flowering plants will benefit from the sunlight.

Perhaps I will be able to sunbathe in my own back garden.

That is a very cheering thought!
