Wood Pigeon's Nest




My Ficus Benjamin grew very large “That tree needs pruned back,’ says dad, taking charge Out come the ladder, the lopper and prop. He climbs up through the branches, right to the top. He lops and he prunes, the north east and west But here to the south... a wood pigeon’s nest My tree’s all lopsided, three quarters shorn And so it will be till the young birds have flown
