My dissertation on Hedges

22 years ago I was awarded distinction by the University of Edinburgh for my dissertation on hedges.

MLA-1993

I recall the gist of my dissertation but not the detail:

001Hedge

I first gave the dictionary definition:

002 Hedge

I then introduced my thoughts:

003 Hedge

But my dissertation was on urban hedges:

004 Hedge

22 years on, Alexander McCall Smith, having watched my films, wrote to me to suggest that I might like this book:

051

I have always loved hedges, especially mixed hedges.

They do not divide in the way that fences or walls do.

Hedges have gaps. The light gets through.

 

After I graduated in Medicine with the University of Aberdeen, 
and having trained as a Junior Doctor, I left medicine to study 
Landscape Architecture with the University of Edinburgh. 
Almost three years later I graduated MLA, with distinction 
in every subject.
