What my neighbour did!

Tim - maybe  she just wanted a better view of YOU 

Verd's right - some people just want a 'sterile' area - I work with someone like that. Not much you can do except create a lovely environment in your own plot

Yvie - is it  you that likes James Taylor? He's on Radio 2 this afternoon at 3pm with Johnnie Walker

Good advice from obelixx Barber - in a couple of months your hedge will almost be back to normal as it's well established. I sympathise enormously and I think you've done the right thing by addressing it without any falling out. Your neighbour now knows where he stands. It seems an odd thing for him to do if there's no shade being cast on his own garden. Naughty of him anyway. Hopefully things will settle and he doesn't do anything similar in future. 

Meant to add - it might be easier to erect  a screen near your daughter's window as a temporary measure rather than try to screen the gap. I understand your feelings there - I have two girls (one just that age)  Some tall annuals on canes in a large pot would do the job or even some of that bamboo on a roll attached to a couple of posts pushed into the ground if that's feasible - just to make her feel secure.

Have you got any of those big pliable trugs Steve? They're ideal as holding tanks till you're organised. Even cheap builder's black buckets will do the job. I know what you mean though...get your waders on!

Magpie Burying Nuts

pansyface - re magpie burying nuts - I once watched a squirrel and a magpie do exactly the same - but the opposite way round!

Most of the hordes were heading to the Cobbler - It's a terrific hill. I was up there a few weeks ago - still lots of snow on it as we've had a lot recently even on the southern Munros.   Yesterday I did Narnain over the spearhead and up the ridge to the summit then across the ridge to A' Chrois as I've always wanted to do that. Just getting my hill legs fit so that I can get to my Munro 'century'. Determined to do that this year.  Got some nice pix although there was quite a bit of cloud so a little hazy. Brilliant day though.

It's stunning chicky. Isn't technology brilliant when it's used like that?

I'd agree nut. Should be much happier than it is in that pic
