progress report

No discernable progress on the weaving, unfortunately, as I have been catching up on a load of work commitments. I hate that part of being ill: you don’t get a gentle warming-back-up period, you just have to work twice as hard as you would normally have done in order not to fall further behind. That is silly and it is making me very tired indeed. But thanks to S there has been progress on the hedge! It looks like this; the hawthorn are the spindly things in the centre of the picture

You can see that they fill an all-important gap between our garden and our neighbour’s drive. Our neighbour used to have a horrible row of leylandii there and we were glad when he took them out — but rather startled that he did so very suddenly after saying for years that they were vital to his privacy. We felt our garden needed rather more privacy than his car and that we were the ones left exposed! However, it has given us the opportunity to put in something much nicer.

Progress has also been made on plans for later in the year: I’m going to Complex Weavers seminars!

    So glad you’re feeling better. So this was exactly on the property line? I’m a little confused as to how your neighbor could claim power of life and death over the nasty leylandii when as far as I can see that space in the picture is all one garden, with some kind of hard walkway or part of the drive immediately beyond your new hawthornes. It’s always funny to to me how every region has it’s own different overused nightmare hedge plant. It must be a nurserymen’s conspiracy!

      Yeah, the boundary line is a bit weird: it runs from the end of our window rather than the end of the wall (that is a useless description without a plan, I know!) The leylandii were dotted about a bit (S has dug quite a few stumps out of our garden) and we could have disputed their ownership if we were the disputatious type, but everything has resolved itself – and the hawthorn are neatly ranged along our side of the line!
