The Naked Side (Yard)

Here's a funny.  This is my side yard which you can only see up to about our Gumbo limbo tree, about halfway down the side of the house itself. You can just make out the little white fence in the background. I'm standing at the top of the neighbor's fence line:


And if I take a few steps to my left, this is my neighbor's side yard:


Absolutely naked.

  1. Boy, naked is right! Makes my hands itch looking at all that potential. :-)

    1. Sad isn't it? It's been that way for 22 years now! The current owners live in Canada 6 months through the summer. I could just "borrow" it and plant southern peas or something! But their lawn guy would squeal on me, most likely!

  2. Wow, look at all of that space! Of course, their living in Canada half the year I can understand why they have empty spaces, as they don't have to worry about anything croaking on them. But, they could have some tropical plants that would thrive and give them beauty. A lot of people don't want to be bothered with the work entailed in keeping up a 'jungle' like I have. Sometimes I can't blame them, but like you, it is therapy for me and great exercise too.

    I like your side yard, it looks similar to mine.

    1. My family/friends think our jungle is over the top as well. We enjoy critters. They need a home too. They can't live next door, that's for sure!
