Changes in landscape
The growth of the trees along the fence line over the years has meant that the vegetable garden gets less and less afternoon sun and, particularly during the winter months, this has meant that the chances of vegetables growing are minimal.
Earlier this year our brother, Alan, cut back some of the trees on our side of the fence line and suddenly the cabbage trees have taken on a life of their own. The fence partitioning has become more obvious too.
Interestingly enough, with the clearance we can now see the glow of the autumn leaves of the trees in our neighbour's garden.
They especially look very pretty in the early morning sun as I look out at them from the sun room while I have my first cup of tea for the day.
