We were truly blessed when we bought our home to have a well established garden, but...
I am so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, SOOOOOOOOOO angry at the previous owners for their lack of foresight when planting trees oh so very close to the house!
I am angry about this because
- The gutters fill with leaves faaaaaaaaar too quickly for us to keep up
- Possums and rodents use the branches to climb onto the house and into our roof cavity
- The trees always need pruning (and then they just grow back anyway)
- It's a waste of a good tree
You know the scene from Julie & Julia where Julie is trying to cook live lobsters and all she can think is "Lobster killer... Lobster killer"? Well that's how I'm feeling. Man, I am pissed at the previous owners.
