My garden is now finished.
And for the curious - the process of giving it a haircut. The loops are done in turkey stitch, and I left all the tails hanging. So my first step was to cut off the tails. I actually quite like this overgrown look, but it does hide the other stitching.
So now the apprentice gardener sets to work.
Almost finished, just a few touch up bits now, and we get the result in the first photo.
Here's the pile of what was chopped off:
Not bad for the apprentices first try :)
