Once upon a time, we had hedges and a garden. Now we have a wild place with wild and running-amok flowers … and the forsythia hedge from hell which is planning to overrun the house. It might just succeed this time!
You can see that not only is the hedge enormous — 10 to 12 feet tall — but it too is being overrun by wild grape vines.
Overall, I think the house is getting serious about falling down, too. But not this week. Just … eventually.
