Garden fence

Posted: 20/08/2017 at 10:18

Is the climber spreading over the fence and into his garden?  If so, and if he doesn't want this to happen he's entitled to cut off any parts of the plant which is encroaching on his space.  Perhaps he sees pushing it back as less likely to offend you than cutting it.

Have a word with him ... give him permission to prune off stray branches etc with your blessing ... or make a point of trimming off the wandering tendrils yourself.

Good neighbourly relations are worth their weight in gold and it would be a shame to fall out over a rambling honeysuckle.

Small forums and those run by voluntary groups etc are usually on  one of several  forum hosting platforms which organisations can 'piggy back' onto.  

This one is owned/run by a commercial business ... it's a different situation.

I've flagged your problem up to the Mods ... I'm sure they'll be in touch with you when they're back in the office.

Hi. Afraid the pics haven't appeared. 

To post photos start with the camera icon.

when you upload you should see a green bar across the bottom of the text box. If the photo still doesn't appear reducing the size usually works.

Dacha ... It's carnival weekend , nothing out of the ordinary appears to have happened. Difficult to phrase that when an alleged rape is being investigated ... But that is what has happened and suddenly the town has gone into lockdown and rumours of all sorts of stuff including violence and stabbings are circulating on social media but the police say no such incidents have been reported. It all seems to have coincided with the arrival of a group of travellers ... tp the best of my recollection travellers turn up every year, in association with the fairground which is a major part of the carnivals in Cromer and Sheringham every year. There's always an increased police presence and nothing seems to have happened this year other than hysteria and panic fuelled by gossip on social media. 

The Eastern Daily Press website gives a calm appraisal of the situation.

There was a lot of 'Madonna adoration' amongst some of the youngsters when I was at art school in the early 90s ........... then I introduced them to Dusty Springfield and Aretha Franklin.......'nuff said

I discovered Arianna Grande when she did that record "Faith" with Stevie Wonder ... loved it 

I find Madonna intensely irritating.
