Yesterday our new next door neighbour cut down ALL the fruit trees in their garden, some 16 or so of them I think.
I used to look out of my bedroom window and see just a canopy of leaves, and in Spring it was beautiful with the different blossoms. Now next door is just a patch of rather withered and weedy grass.
I rushed out yesterday afternoon, when I began to appreciate the scale of the devastation, to purchase a couple of large and fast growing shrubs to reinstate some of the privacy we have lost down that side of the garden. But one of the most irritating things is that I had planted things that liked semi-shade there – and now they are in full sunlight! And I have a garden party next weekend……
Other half says: Think positive, maybe they are going to turn what was something of a wildlife wilderness (after three years of being untended) into a more ordered garden. Personally I have my doubts (and I liked the wildlife wilderness). But at least they haven’t concreted the whole thing over………
