Chainsaw massacre... of leylandii

Progress in the garden lately has been more structural than railway. The long leylandii hedge down one side has been removed - after much consideration, I concluded that a "scorched earth" policy was really the only way forward. Fence should go up next week, and then we can start thinking about a track bed along this side of the garden. Now that will be progress! The top photo shows the aftermath, while the photo below shows the hedge and a rather artificial leylandii arch over the back of the pond... all now swept away in the name of progress.
