Neusaess, DE and London, UK
The garden at the back of the Edwardian terrace which is my London
home is small but compact. A Magnolia Grandiflora Exmouth grows
in its middle, a variety that keeps its glossy, oblong leaves in winter and blossoms in summer. White, deliciously fragrant flowers grace the tree unfailingly, giving me hours of pleasure upon my return from my European excursions. But the neighbor complains about the tree shading her garden. Each year I chop off branches to keep her happy. Each year I dread hearing from her.
