spring is in the air! And in the garden, but my garden is a junkyard. :(

First a springly picture and then the ugly ones!
I am not posting this to chase you all away, but just for myself in hope there will be improvement in a couple of weeks!
We almost live here for a year now and it really is time to start working in the garden!
Still all the work has to be done and a lot off work before we can even start!
We have to take out the old hedge before planting a new one etc. etc...
At this moment I feel like I am living in the middle of the street!
Everybody can see right in the house and before we lived all hidden away!
I want this "tucked in feeling" again!!!
HELP!!
Sinds the hedge is gone I don't sleep as good as I used to, could that be?
I have never lived so open in my life!

Mijn tuin ziet er ongeveer hetzelfde uit, heb vandaag een halve dag bladeren geharkt, maar het ziet er niet beter uit...;-)

I see potential galore. Gardens are just waiting to be created. Enjoy!

It is a big change to cut down trees or a hedge! Now that we have lived in the middle of our small farm with the trees behind us and the pastures in front, I can't imagine living in a close neighborhood anymore! My husband planted azaleas all day! I'm hoping they grow to beat the band quickly!

Perhaps you could put up some willow hurdles while you grow another hedge?
The farmer whose field is next to mine is renewing his fence, but has left it all open at the moment and I worry that deer will get in and eat my plants!

What will you do to replace the hedge?
I have a lot of work in my garden too, maybe we can work together from time to time?

What a great opportunity to create a beautiful garden. You could plant some Willow where the hedge was, which you can then weave into a decorative fence.
