I have recieved a letter from the council regarding the state of my bush; apparently it's spreading into the road and is causing a hazard. Well, it's been a little chilly of late and I've been a little lapse with my landscaping, plus there's been a dearth of visitors - so why bother? Anyhow, it seems a neighbour has complained and wants my bush seen to as soon as poss [best offer I've had in ages] and I have 14 days to sort myself out or 'Action will be taken' [two offers in one day].
Sigh, I apologise for my unruly bush and I'm sorry that it's caused offence, but I hate the sound of trimmers - it puts my teeth on edge and there's only so much I can do with a pair of nail scissors . . .
Deary me; perhaps I should start a campaign . . . something on the lines of 'Save Scarlet's Bush Now!'.
What d'ya reckon?
***UPDATE*** 17.03 GMT : The general consensus appears to be that the bush should be removed on Tuesday. Crikey . . . it's a political minefield out there . . .
