Photo Hunt - Space



This is the space behind us. It is subdivided for modular homes. When this development happened, we were totally flummoxed, as it totally took away our view. You see, in order
to see the space behind us, I am standing on the retaining way, approximately 6' off the ground, and I still can't see over the fence! I took the picture by holding my camera over my head. I'm 5'6".



Otherwise, this is what we see! I've gussied it up with some shrubbery but I'd much rather be able to see the hills and the clouds. (For those of you who have heard me gripe about this, sorry for the repeat!)

Be sure and peek in on Photo Hunt and TN Chick!

We had an abandoned orchard behind us until is was dug up and replaced by low cost housing. I wish the orchard was still there but the people who live there are good neighbours.

I love what yoy see on your side of the fence! Happy weekend

Lovely photos. Love your garden space, wish that someone would do mine as nicely.

I will never understand developers and the stupid things they do to mess up a gorgeous view.

The clouds look really nice, though, and your backyard is lovely. I have other houses surrounding me but they seem like nice ones at least!

My in-laws had some great trees behind their house that went undeveloped for several years. Now, there are two houses behind their house, and only a handful of trees to block the view since people don't have block wall fencing back there. It's so sad when developers eat up all the undeveloped land.

That looks like a nice garden but it's sad that your beautiful view has been obstructed by it.
