I thought we need a rant thread for non-dog related rants.
Well, I need one.
The neighbours house has been sold. Not that I shed a tear that our neighbour left... but the new owners are busying themselves taking down the whole bloody garden. The house was surrounded by beautiful native scrubs, home to hundreds of birds and other wildlife. It also provided a windbreak (we're on a slope) for at least three houses including their own and a screen. In fact we now have a free view into their bedroom window. Thanks guys!
Not only we have, but our dog has too. We look into their bedroom and overlook their backyard and parts of their front yard. I just wait for our dog to bark his head off when these morons start moving around. I already miss these bushes, the birds and our privacy. Watching them bulldozing the lot makes me really upset If they want suburbia, why can't they stay in suburbia?
They had three magnificent gum trees in their garden, which were free standing and not really a threat to anyone or anything as far away from their house. Several possums shared those. Guess what... they came down yesterday afternoon. I had to leave it made me too upset watching it.
Got to go now... off to the nursery finding fast growing replacement scrubs. A friend suggeted Wattle, pointing out that with a bit of luck they might be allergic
