Shoots and Ladders: Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

Click on first photo to enlarge all.

When my neighbors’ gardener leaned over my wall to cut the main stems of the vines that swathed my fifteen-year-old palm tree, and the entire wall beside my house, it made for a lot of work and expense to cut and remove the vine that weeks before had been a lush verdant green covered with blue thunbergia flowers. It took four truckloads to haul it away. Good fences do not always make good neighbors.

This is what the vine looked like before its demise!!

Cee has a prompt series going that involves titles for children’s games. This week’s topic is “Chutes and Ladders.”  Actually, a game I’ve never played!! Afraid I interpreted the prompt as a homonym rather than verbatim.

    Wait. Wut? Those are your trees, right? Covered with vines? That, by the sounds of it were gorgeous? And that you wanted? And your *neighbor’s* gardener went over the fence to cut the main vine stems? Without telling/asking you? And you had to pay for it all to be hauled off? Am I missing something?
