I shot this as I cycled home last week. The light was going and the gardeners in Hyde Park were tidying up after an eight hour shift meticulously tying in wayward branches on the pleached lime trees along the Rose Garden. I paced it out and while you can't see all of it in this picture, it's about 200 yards long. They've already been at this job a week now and it'll probably take two in total.
In summer the branches form tight green squares as a backdrop to a magnificent display of rambling and climbing roses but thinking about a shift on top of staging on a cold, wet, winter day, office gossip around the water cooler seems quite a perk.
