I know what you mean.. the elderly lady next door used to call Willow, the overseer as he used to follow me round and inspect my work.

Mine's at the end of the patio  and I can pretty much let it do it's own thing so there's a good b5ut of leeway but the final dimensions are scary.

If I'd realised, I might have planted it a few yards away.  In my ignorance, I thought  - in a pot - small not that it was small because it was in a pot !

SG, that's the difference between dogs and cats as we see it.

Asses and donkeys are seen as stupid because they won't do what we want - I see it as a sign of intelligence

I have an acer which was suffering in a pot so I stuck it in the ground, to live or die. It decided to live a full life. I was a bit horrified to see how big they can get. But with judicious pruning I'm hoping we can live harmoniously

Up until recently we've always had pets - dogs or cats or both at the same time. Old age or illness has left us petless for a couple of years now.

Freedom, no s###t inside or out, no brown patches on grass, no cat hairs in laundry basket , fleas, tricks or companionship, exercise unconditional welcome?

Btw, my brother, for once, had a profound thought:

When you take the dog out, you go to the park. When you leave the house to go to work, the dog assumes you have gone to the park without them.

Every time you come home ,you are forgiven!

Thanks Pete. I meant to tag up the branches I wanted to trim but I didn't   Will have to go with gut instinct.
