You are right curved shapes are so much better,a brick hedge will be a great idea ,maybe similar of the one of your house ,a nice rusty metal hedge can look great too.
Hope you feel better soon

Hello Ladybug, I do hope you are starting to feel a bit better. I’m sorry I didn’t realise your were poorly. I, myself, had covid recently, I understand how you have been feeling.
Sending you best wishes and hopefully you will build up strength and your health in the coming months.

Sorry you have been unwell Ladybug, my daughter in law and son both had the virus, Gary got over his within a couple of weeks but Vicky was completely different, she was poorly for a long time and took months to get her energy back again, you are right to do things in easy stages, simply not worth wearing yourself out, the main thing is to enjoy what you are doing, ...X

Hi ladybug, did the black bees have a red bum if so they are red-tailed bumble bee and they are out and about now making new colonies. But there are lots of bumbles so it could be one of many. According to a bee book there are 27 species of bumble bee in the UK. Many are black and yellow, but there are a other few black ones.

It must be very hard gardening when energy is in short supply, Ladybug. Hopefully it will improve as the season moves forward.
