I’ve been playing around trying to design a logo for the blog. Not sure why but it keeps me off the streets.
Do you own a billhook? If your garden comprises mostly soft herbaceous plants and planted up pots then you probably don’t need one. But down at the Priory I use one quite often. It’s a great, if slightly alarming, tool for cutting beanpoles and the like, removing the side branches off larger branches and, of course, hedge laying. Not that I’ve laid a hedge in my life.
Anyway, thought I’d try to incorporate one into the logo.
I was quite pleased with the effect but then realised that actually it is far too apocalyptic. The billhook looks like a weapon that a Viking warrior has just whacked into a wooden post whilst he takes a breather from all that rape, pillage and slaughter.
Perhaps not quite the message I was trying to convey.
