I'd like to say a big SORRY for being a bad bloggy friend/follower.
Last week, which should have been a lovely week, with time off work and gorgeous weather, turned out to be really grotty and I was a bit of a misery guts...
Firstly, I had a throat infection. Then I had some money stolen from me. I came home one day to find the landlords of the property next door had cut back the ivy on their garage that adjoins our garden. They were perfectly within their rights, but if only they'd asked I could have cut it back without causing soooo much damage to my plants.
The worst was still to come though. They creosoted OUR fence (their side) with a sprayer! The fence is completely on our property and doesn't even touch the boundary. This caused a lot of damage to our plants and I think we will lose them all - many mature and some slow growing, plants.
As it is the old oil based creosote it has also contaminated the soil.
To say I was devastated is an understatement!!
We've contacted the landlord and had no respsonse...
After days of gloom and worry (I have two dogs) I now realise that at least it's only plants (and paving), and much as I love them it could have been people or pets that I lost.
So, sorry for being a poor blogger and swap partner and for a miserable post today. I shall return with more cheerful posts very soon.
I am enjoying catching up with your blogs today.
Thanks for visiting
(and 'listening' to my woes.)
