We have just had the painters in for nearly two weeks. The outside of our house had not been painted for a long time. It's amazing how the walls get dirty from the rain and garden soil, insects and spider webs.
I have a very busy garden and many, many plants had to be cut back severely to allow the painters to get to the walls. Lots of the remaining plants came off the worst for wear as well.
But I can't complain too much because the house needed to be painted. Now it looks fresh and clean. I console myself in the thought that in twelve months the plants will have grown back. It will also give me the chance to remove some and replant with something new.
Sorry to disappoint you if you think the above picture is my home. It's not.
