When we moved to town almost 6 years ago, it was a huge change for us.
We were used to quiet peaceful evenings.
That doesn’t happen in town unless it is 23º outside.
We were used to letting the kids go out and play whenever they liked and not have any fear that they would be harmed.
In town, you keep your kids close by.
We were used to fresh air.
That doesn’t happen in town, period.
We were used to not seeing neighbors unless you walked at least a half mile down the road.
In town, the neighbors sit on their front porch and stare into your living room through your middle class Victorian windows that almost reach the floor.
When I began to notice the neighbor’s watching our every move on a daily basis, about 3 days after we moved in, I got the idea to plant a lovely “fence line” of Rose of Sharron hedges. They grow marvelously fast, and are outrageously beautiful.
They are now tall enough to block pesky neighbors from viewing me blog every morning, and watch Law and Order CI every evening.
Now if I could just find a way to keep that little girl off her scooter at 10pm….
PS. There is going to be a give away tomorrow.
