If you owned the little home on the left, would this photo scare you?
It scares me because it's right behind my house.
Here's what's left of what used to be a very large back yard.
There are only a few choices for builders.
Big house on big lot
Big house on small lot
Small house on small lot
Small house on big lot (lot's of room for gardening!!!)
Here's the sad part...this is the new view from my secluded garden bench at the very back of the garden.
If I plant a line of tall cherry laurel trees, this would block out the people and the windows.
But that's a terrible idea since the same line of trees would block out the precious sunshine.
I guess this is what I get for living in a city of 2.1 million people.
For all of you with this problem I'd like to know if you ever think about people watching you garden? Maybe I should just wave from time to time.
Thanks for any advice.
Happy Gardening, David/:0)
