It is a variety of hibiscus by the look of it-they take a while to get going- got some just starting to flower now

I would like a couple of a certain age,with no children that scream,who look after the garden ,do not play loud music or park on the grass verge.

A few simple conditions.

GB has another meddle

Jenny I am now sort of retired and don't like to think of work-my last job was very fraught and not a nice memory

Your job sounds as if it come from a tv script-like Monarch of the Glen or Dr Finlay-how/why did you start?

Kate-that neighbour needs physiatric help

Jenny-it isn't easy -but he is doing what he thinks is right and you have helped him to achieve that

You are right to feel proud

Jenny -I think you are being very brave -I remember what it was like when ours went to university-he didn't stick at but that is another story-you will be a wreck for a few days-but he will only be a phone call way, you can save up for a super holiday and if that is what he wants then that is a positive

Just try not to think about it too much or do a countdown -easy for me to say I know

What has eaten my Lupin - I need to protect the other 3

That would be snail damage -they climb up the stem-have had similar damage and caught them at it-if you go out after dark you may find them on the plant-use whatever you like to deter

I think this will not be a quick sell -it is way over priced-there is another house in the road going for £150000 -that does need work but not £50000 worth-he paid £165000 five years ago current value around £170000-so a drop of £30000 is a bit of a drop.

I have no idea where the agent is getting his figures from.

Another neighbour told me he is going to Australia as well-but does that depend on this?

That is the point all the structure is there-the grass needs cutting there is enormous buddleia and viburnum that badly need cutting back-bindweed everywhere -so if someone just did that it would make a difference-it is such a shame as the previous,previous owner did a lot of work
