What would your sign say?
I saw this sign the day after I read this post from Heather about neighborhood kids tromping through her gravel berm/rain garden, and this post from LeAnn about a brazen flower thief in her garden. Both of those posts, plus their comments (along with my personal experience) tells me we all have something to get off our chests when it comes to the way our gardens are treated by others.
The homeowner above aimed the sign towards a large church parking lot (with landscaping) next door. I can only assume that the mow-and-blow guys cleaning up around the church make their job a little easier by blowing some of the mess towards this poor person. Heck I’ve experienced the same thing from both of my neighbor's lawn care services (sometimes it seems I'm the only person in Portland who mows her own lawn).
So what would your sign say?
Right now mine would say “use the damn sidewalk Mr. Delivery man!!!” I mean really, what about this front yard says “just cut right up the middle?” Nothing! Use the sidewalk! You know that thing on the left that connects to the huge open driveway...it means about 6 extra steps, come on, you can handle that...
Okay your turn…what would your sign say?
