Great news Sinann.  :D

Indeed we are hugely lucky Caroline, and we have blessed our choice of retirement residence every day since moving in 5 years ago, but being on the first floor I would give a lot to have some protected, private garden space at the moment.  To be able to go out and potter a bit, or just sit in our own kingdom would be very welcome at this time.  Nevertheless, we have incomparable walks,  for which I am very grateful.

For Roobarb:

I wonder whether this is a solution for you.  Not real plants - so unkillable - and could be nailed to the fence.  There are all sorts of different types and if you combined it with actual planting, it could be a very effective screen.....

Thank you.  :) I looked at this some time ago but had forgotten about it. The one I've just clicked on says it's currently unavailable to order due to unprecedented demand, I suspect that might be the case with other ones but I have found something similar on the website that sells books and everything else in creation! The details say fasten with galvanised wire and cable ties but I don't see why it couldn't be nailed on.

The part of my ivy that's survived has today somehow become unhooked from the trellis it was pinned behind. Okay, it's been windy but not that windy  ::) I reckon the phantom garden menace has been at it again.....

Well I suppose they could pick off all the plastic leaves, but at least you wouldn't suffer the pain of seeing something living, that you've tended lovingly, killed off for no reason..... :o

I wouldn't put it past her!  ;D Yes, it's very much worse when I've been growing these plants for twenty years.
