Unfortunate Borrowed Views
This honeysuckle blooms almost all summer. This summer, as hot and dry as it was, did it no favors. I have trimmed it back and tied it up hoping that by next July it will send out as much growth as I trimmed off, hiding this peeling spot on my neighbor's house.
Also, one of the reasons I mounted my two newly green apple painted trellis high on the fence!
One of the things I noticed this summer on some of the garden walks I went on was a sort of property line myopia. The gardener would spend a lot of time thinking through plant combos only to have them backed by a neighbor'a trash cans, dog kennel, or clothesline.
