It's coming alive

Post: Bernie: July 19, 2011
Note: To follow The Gathered Hedge from beginning to end, choose Introduction from the index at right.

So here we are in mid July 2011 just about year from the start of our project.

The Gathered Hedge has been raised from the "wild art of the winter wind", has already survived a few thunder and lightning wind storms and is changing daily..

Our vision is that by the Autumn we will have a few feet thick wall of growth about half way up the Hedge (I am doing some training of the vines and growth so that happens, while Joey would rather see it just grow up however it does).

We are still undecided about if we will weave some more textiles into the mix, but we are certain that we will weave more passed by vines in.
