Spring cycles

It is pretty cool being the second growing season at the gardens and starting to see the effects of some of the long term projects.

Swales have nice dirt at the bottom of them and greener plants downhill.
Soil in gardens is much less clay and is taking shape into terraces.
Weed numbers reduced
Clusters of mixed garden that seem quite tough and resilient are forming and other gardens spreading from there.

The pruned christmas tree hawthorn out my window looks much more classic conical.
The elfhouse and bathroom tree shaping has a shape. :)
