We deserve a sit down and a cup of coffee ... at last we've been around to the neighbours' garden and pulled down the Russian Vine that every year leaps up into the branches of our ash tree.
Originally the Russian Vine came from this garden (planted by a previous owner) and spread across the adjoining gardens and took root there. We've removed it from our garden but next door aren't as methodical as us and anyway, they regard it as our problem rather than their responsibility ... however they're quite happy for us to go round each winter and haul it out of the branches and cut it back to the level of their hedge.
And now it's been done for another year!
Have you just done a job that's been glaring at you reproachfully for ages ................... ?
