Clematis Camouflage

I think the blight of modern new build plots are the paling fences. This is the result of two and half years worth of growth and collaboration with the neighbours. Far left we have a honeysuckle that falls over into the neighbours' garden and his magnificent clematis follows the sun into our garden. Our red rose at the end entwines with the tree the other side of the fence. We also have a yellow rose that has burst through the forest of clematis which will come into bloom later. The roses put on a display for our neighbours as well as us.

It's taken me ages to disguise our fence too. At last it is done but I think someone else will benefit if we sell, as we will surely have to. Your looks fab and I like your description of the roses.

Cementing good relations with the neighbours eh. It all looks lovely!! We are surrounded with trees in all directions and I feel so lucky.
Hope your weather is a great as it is here at the moment.
Love Granny

I also have had to wait a long time to get rid of ugly walls and fences. Now shrubs are getting heavy and in danger of causing damage to the fences & trellis. Can't win.

Love your shrubs though. Good screening plants.
