A battle lost, the war won.

Today we started in a fairly half-arsed, 'I suppose we should do something' kind of way, and then actually got a lot done. We cleared the top stretch of fencing and cut down a fair sized tree. I got in a fight with a rose tree and lost. And we found some very bizarre things hiding in the junk behind the fencing. I'm shattered.

And this is the pile of junk made elsewhere by the stuff coming out of the boundary...*sigh*

I'm looking forward to finishing off and tidying up, I have to say.
Of course, there's plenty to be getting on with after that...
