I'm so Blue!!
I'm so blue and so is the TARP!!! Can you see it?
If you've been following along, you know that my house is up for sale. Part of the selling point is the garden and backyard. Pictures of my beautiful garden are on the Internet.
Here's the thing. My backyard neighbor died a few years ago, and her house finally sold. We were thrilled! Maybe the market is moving again. The price was comparable to our house -- good news for us. But I never dreamed that my new neighbors would park a trailer covered in a BIG BLUE TARP as close to the property line as humanly possible (that's my tree in front of the trailer and we own about four feet on the other side of the trunk) And I can't do one thing about it. It's all perfectly legal. How can I complain when we haven't even met them yet?
I'm finally emotionally ready to move and I'm sure this is going to hurt our yard appeal! Am I being a spoiled brat? Too selfish, only thinking about my own life? How would you handle this? Or should I leave it alone so I can get a good night's sleep?
Let me know your thoughts and ideas. I need another gardener's insight.
