Hi Fran. I see you have a concrete wall like wot we do. Not a pretty sight are they? Did you notice your pot of fire is first on the introduction photo section. It moves along over time. I put in a comment sometimes as they come on.

Those are hardboard sheets behind the plants, held to the wire-mesh fence with twisted and rusty wire at the top, and chunks of wood sunk into the gound, and also into concrete, at the foot.

I'd have 'em all out if I could; okay, the previous tenant wanted privacy, and so do I, but there must be a more elegant way to get it!

Behind the fence is a green - that's where all the trees and squirrels are. There are two gates, but both in public areas, so both are heavily padlocked, which makes the green inacessible to anyone - I'm trying to get around to seeing if I can have a gate put in my fence so at least I can put my bird feeders up where the squirrels won't invade my grden, and at least I could walk barefoot on grass and sit under a tree.

And on the other side of the green is another block; that's the white splash at the top of the photo.

I hadn't noticed that the photo's moved, maybe it's because it's now my icon. I kept clicking the wrong tag when uploading photos, and so my icon kept changing; I went through the photos I had to find one that sort of represented me, and settled on the fire. See how long that lasts before I click the wong tag again!
