Most people just got tired of it and now ignore it. Deny it the oxygen of publicity.

That's OK Diddy, most people have chosen to ignore that person anyway. Only trouble is they seem to be about to ignore you too in the belief that it is you.

Rose changing colour......

As puncdoc says, sometimes roses change colour a bit with the seasons. Sometimes one shoot changes colour and the rest of the plant stays the same. This is known as a sport and is one way of getting a new variety.

If you bought the rose from a reputable dealer and you have checked that the rose you think is Twice in a Blue Moon looks the same as photos of it on websites then it may just be having a little autumn moment.

Wait until next year and, if it is still pink all over, I'd take it back, if you can.

Heloo Joyce, hope the cul de sac is now getting a good clean these days at least.

If the house is let there is every chance that the tenants have a responsibility to keep the property in a reasonable condition. That includes the garden. So your neighbour was correct to say that the people living there should do it. But he should make them. Or if it's let via an agency, they should make them.

If all else fails, contact your council. They have the ability to make homeowners/tenants keep the footpath clear of hazards.

Jim, look at my initial post. I said "get rid of it".

I have been growing apple trees with success for going on 60 years, I haven't just "read a book".

True, Verdun. There are hidden depths in everyone. No, don't worry, I'm not Penniesfromheaven in disguise.

Does the Badachro Inn still have that old sea chart on the wall showing the water depths around the bay? It was a framed bit of ancient white paper with tiny black marks all over it. The first time I saw it I was certain they were squashed midges.
