Cool shot with the airplane in flight. And that big lawn with the bird. And the same-y houses. Exxxcellent.

What are you going to plant there now? If you're vindictive, how about something that will make lots of leaf litter!

Ceanothus!

I don't know what to do back there. I still want access to the alley for hauling things in and out, so I need to think about what would work best.

I'd like to define the lawn better and then have a perennial border. That could be pretty.

But it would also be fun to do something crazy with all that space, like a corn maze or a huge topiary or something.

But I really love playing badminton down there in the summertime.

Lily wants to play there this summer. We do, too! Maybe A. will talk you into some bamboo and if it ever gets too invasive, sell that lot to someone else.

Looks like you cause alot of trouble for nothing.It looked better before. Some people are to be pitied.

It wasn't terrible; we just needed access to the public alley. And we're totally willing to work out solutions with anyone who comes and talks to us. It's a pity some people had to be so mean!

You had a legal right to have those trees removed, and the trespasser who removed them knows that and understands why. What you have here is an anonymous troll and I would encourage to you to delete the comment for the good of bloggers everywhere. It's like graffiti; if you allow it to stand, it just encourages more.

That's my two cents.

Have you installed sitemeter? You can often get some information like ISPs and domain names from visitors.

And I turned off anonymous comments when I started getting into some shit with my neighbor. You just never know what's going to come crawling out of the woodwork.
