Still no solution to the huge ash tree
You may or may not recall my complaints about the very large ash tree which is growing just a foot from our boundary fence in a neighbour’s garden. Well, we at long last managed to speak to her when she said she intended to have the tree taken down. Yippee! We offered to make a contribution which seemed to please her and she also said she would have the massive lime tree pollarded. This meant we would finally have afternoon sun in our garden.
That was well over two months ago and she hasn’t been back to the house since. Apparently she lives in Yorkshire with her partner and only visits a couple of times a year leaving the house for the occasional use of her adult son. Now I believe it’s too late to remove the tree, even if she were here to organise it as it looks as if the birds are beginning to nest. A blue tit has been viewing our house on the pergola and I can see a nest in the lime tree.
So, it looks like another year without much sunshine.
