33 Box Balls

Box, Buxus sempervirens, is traditionally clipped on Derby day, the day of the Epsom Derby, during the first week in June. As can be seen by today's date, 23rd July, we are slightly late. Ali was given the task of clipping the 33 box balls located in the Ruskin Building courtyard, 30 in the Serpentine Border and 3 on the neighbouring Black & White Border. Starting after tea break she managed to clip 13 of the box balls with the hand shears, and with a stiff back and sore arms, she will be back again tomorrow to finish.
