Sickly privet hedge?

At our last house the neighbour's garden was like that - at least we got the benefit of the wildlife who lived  there and came into our garden to play and disport themselves

Is this unusual

Clari, you could loan us the children - they could form a chain and pass furniture from one to the other down the stairs and round to the back door - I could just stand there and crack a whip .................... whaddayamean didn't I used to work for Social Services???

Although, of course at this time of year the debris in the bottom of hedges is just what the hedgehogs need for hibernation

It'd be a good way of getting the debris from the bottom of the hedge Buddyboy - maybe the neighbour would let her do it from their side of the hedge and blow the debris through to Sarah's garden where it could be cleared up and burnt?

Good morning all   I slept in!!!

A fine, dry and sunny morning here too - it seems we brought some of the Cornish weather home to East Anglia with us. 

Fingers crossed for Pat's results and hope that they get to the bottom of the problem.   What a beautiful picture Pat

I'm taking loadsa caffeine on board prior to setting off to move Wonky - the car is loaded with cardboard boxes so hopefully they'll help.  The stuff just has to be moved down two flights of stairs, out the front door and round to the back door, so as the weather is forecast to stay dry that shouldn't be too bad.  Her brother isn't working today so he's going to pop round and help for a while too.
