This is my Friday rant……. We live on a hill that runs to a ravine. Last year, the city put in a walking path between our backyard and the ravine. I thought i’d hate it but it’s acutally ok. Drives our dog crazy, though, when other dogs walk by.
My issue today is with what they call Naturalization. The city has taken about 6 feet of grass between the walking path and our back yard and decided to “Naturalize” it. this means that the city won’t cut it because they want it to look natural. My opinion is that they’re just too stinkin’ lazy to cut it.
I’ve attached some pictures for you to see what i mean. In the one picture you can see a picker bush that is about 4 feet tall! And this is only May 28th. I can’t imagine what it will look like in August! I’m just waiting for the end of the summer when the goldenrod is 10 feet tall and my kids and i sneeze from morning to night because it’s pollen is blowing into our windows. I wonder if i can send the city my Kleenex bill?
