The figure on top is a rampant lion, holding a flag which doubles as a weather vane. It is a very delicate structure so the Muehlenbeckia needed to be removed to avoid damage. It was a difficult task for Jonathan, using scaffolding and a long reach pruning device. It took all afternoon gently pulling the plant away from a very relieved looking lion. The plant will be fed and it will continue to clothe the walls of the summerhouse, where it will be kept in check.
