My next door neighbour has the most amazing rose in her garden, and by some miracle of luck, it has grown over to our side.
I think it started last year when we noticed it had climbed up a tree on our side. This year it kind of collapsed onto our side, and the spur grew so much that I swear we are getting more flowers than they are, which seems a bit cheeky.
However, the happy coincidence of it growing into the lime green foliage of our tree gives us both a mutual benefit, greater than if either of us kept our plants on our own side of the fence….
There is a saying that you should offer back anything that you take off the plant, so I guess that means if we pick any flowers.
The whole thing makes me feel somewhat like a character out of the fairy tale Rapunzel.
