As someone who lives on a street with a fair number of empty foreclosed properties, this blog really caught my eye. I think it’s awful what happened to her garden, and that jerk from the bank should be ashamed of himself.
The Foreclosure Garden
But, the jerk notwithstanding, I really LOVE what she tried to do here. As some readers know, we’ve been taking care of an empty piece of property for several years, as well as having taken care of the house next door for the years it sat foreclosed and abandoned. Sometimes it gets very frustrating with the way the city prioritizes things, but with two more neighbors moving out (one house foreclosed, one just moving) I think it’s going to be more important than ever to stay upbeat and inspired and to keep our block looking loved.
