The access roads were put in when the farm was sold, and the estate put around us.  When the lady next door asked why there were two roads leaading to a dead end on her property, they said it was for the other houses. She said"over my dead body" the planners said "precisely". It does mean I have a rear access  to get tractor loads of muck or pallets of stuff in. Its a lot easier to barrow down the garden than up it.

It has its pros and cons. Pros are the wildlife and privacy, cons are that when the owners sell up, developers will probably rip everything thats not  got a TP order out and stick 60 houses on it. At that point I will sell up and move too.

I've been trawling through old photos on the computer. Its amazing how the beds change from one year to the next. Something dies overwinter, and leaves a gap. Other things are getting too big.

Definitely time to have a clear out  and a rethink. Lots of catalogues to peruse over winter.

Its drizzling steadily here. I am uploading garden animal pictuers on to the camera thread. I keep coming across warm place diving pictures. I'm getting withdrawal symptoms. I need warmth on my old bones.
