Summertime ... 1 neighbor needs a lesson in boundaries!
I can't blame it on the heat, but fortunately I was outside weeding when I over heard my neighbor tell her lawn crew to cut every bit of my passiflora carulea off HER hedge.
fired up his long hedge trimmer I walked over to greet him and point out that the vine covered in buds was on MY property.
He said "but the lady said she wants to cut it off."
I said "no", saw the concern on his face (she's a weekly client) and I suggested that we leave it where it is, but pull any stray vines over to one side. They agreed. I also paid them to trim my side of the hedge behind my azaleas and they did a great job.
I just hope that the next time I'm out there. Geeeze I'm willing to be neighborly but she known no boundaries!
