Autumn - time for pruning the deciduous shrubs. Yesterday, it was the turn of American Dogwoods (Cornus sericea) by the pond to receive their annual “haircut”. The resident frogs were in full voice – how on earth they can focus on reproduction in that freezing water is beyond me, but that’s another topic!
The clumps of bulrushes at the pond’s edge looked marvellous in the late afternoon sun - worthy of fetching the camera, but I had instead some fun with a scrap of paper, brush and black ink.
