For The Neighbour

A week or two ago I saw one of my neighbours waiting near my gate as I walked home. As usual, he wanted to tell me that something in my garden was too big (it's the only reason he ever speaks to me). I wasn't sure which plant in particular was worrying him, but I had noticed that the lemon-scented teatree (Leptospermum petersonii) was sending a branch towards his house, so I think it was that one. That sounds like I wasn't listening but the problem really is that his accent is very strong and I understand very little of what he says.
So today, the branch was removed. I hope that means he won't have to talk to me again for a while. A couple of the callistemons are spreading past the fence line as well, but I want to wait until they finish flowering before pruning them.

  1. amazing how those (ownership of space) barriers extend up into the air above the fences isn't it, straight up in a vertical line.
