New neighbours...into the unknown.

I live in a block of flats (8), and recently 2 flats have been vacated.

The newcomers will inject a bit of new life into the 'close'.

The 'moving in' processes have just begun.

Thankfully, my flat is situated on a different level.

Why am I having territorial pangs, just like nesting birds have?

If there were that many large pots then I wonder about the weight on the veranda.

Woolwell - my verandah is well-supported (most of it anyway) by my neighbour's sitting room directly below me...I've got about half-a-ton of pots on it at the momment, and about half-a-ton to add.

I can and will respect my new neighbour's wishes 'cos perhaps she doesn't like anybody invading her space...I have never been a 'Space-Invader' ;o]

That doesn't sound very friendly to a neighbour in my opinion. Supporting all that weight on her living room! I think the allotment idea sounds good to me. You can use pots there too and they are not in danger of crashing through someone's ceiling.

Bing.alau I like to see my plants from my window...an allotment is out of the question... but I will be sowing some ['sky-scraper' variety] lily seeds...soon...and I'm not laughing.

The remainder of the potted plants at the back of my flat are all set to go to my sister or neice's gardens. There's about 2 tons to shift (about a mile)...I will probably get a local removal van to do the transference.

My new neighbour will have a blank canvas...and that's what I want also.
