Other Growth

While our fall garden may be stunted, the neighborhood is not. Here are some scenes from my back deck.


These are 2 "houses" that are being built behind us. I say "houses" because they are being built on lots that are a mere 25 feet wide. That is more townhome than house to me. Where once there was one house, there will be three. *sigh*

If you look past my next door neighbor's house and into the next yard, you will see an excavator and a little bobcat. The house and awesome-beyond-all-hoarder's-belief garage is going away. Two fabulous new homes are to be built on that lot soon.


It is not very quiet around here these days what with all the banging and air compressors and smashing going on. I'm also feeling a little encroached upon. Those houses in the back are built right up to the alley and are hovering over my backyard. More motivation to get out of here. So again - *sigh*.

I really wish the best for you. This housing market really sucks.

I'm sorry your feeling encroached on. Hopefully you'll get to move soon-or you'll have really super nice new neighbors : )

Too much house, not enough yard. Anybody in an over-developed area has my sympathy. Especially if you were there before the over-development happened.

My mom still lives in the house that I grew up in just south of West U. I don't even recognize the neighborhood anymore. And besides all that, who has the money to buy those $1,000,000.00 houses? Not Mom.

Still praying for your new farm home, Danielle Boonette! :-)
