The rain stopped today and it’s brighter. We talked to our neighbours when they were here in the summer holiday to get his permission to go into their garden and get the ivy off our side wall.
We only have a short ladder so we couldn’t get it all off but we did our best with what we had.
We snipped and pulled, moved to he ladder and snipped and pulled again.
I did my bit and pulled off the lower ivy.
You can see the inverted V shape where the ivy used to be.
It’s not bad considering how much ivy there was previously. I’d forgotten how relaxing physical work can be.
The last bits were really tricky and I hope what we left will die back.
One day, we’ll paint the house cream like all the neighbouring houses but for now, I’ll settle with bare walls. I’ve dug out some of the path around our front gate and we’re off to the brico for some gravel. In between, we come inside for a warm up, a coffee and a dog snuggle.
