Trimming the Ancient Hedges

Trimming the ancient hedges.
What a Herculean effort!
This photo takes my breath away.

Wow.....never thought about them even making ladders that tall! Not me, I would not be the one climbing that.

However do they keep perspective when trimming these tall lovelies so evenly!

Linda -- look closely for that "string". They line it up somehow as a guide.

Pam Jackson -- I am not good on short ladders beyond the third rung. There is NO WAY I could manage to get to the top and then still have to clip away the ruly foliage!!! But I'm glad to see how it's done!

Now I see the string . . . still

I'm with Linda plus I don't like heights. Yes this does take ones breath away. Unfortunately I could use a very tall ladder like the one pictured to clean one window and check a smoke detector in my new cottage.
