Prairie Project

by Eric J H Joyce March. 12, 2008 3118 views

There had been this garden of weeds in the backyard that had to go. One year one of my friendly neighbors called the city on me and they sent me a letter in the mail about them being a nuisance and to do something about them. I sprayed and pulled pissed the whole time. So I turned it into my ‘Prairie Project’.

This is what it looked like before houses took over our backyard view and my weed garden.

First I had to get rid of all of the weeds, I had an idea of what I wanted to do.

The wheel is from an abandoned farm site, I wanted 2 of them but I only had so much room.

After a major rain storm.

ah yes, England does those kind of neighbours by the shed load. But the way it looked before would have had a different result in hackney. You would have had a doorstep deputation demanding to know if your having such a tidy garden, was in some way a comment about the state of theirs. ?:o)

There are some "friendly neighbours" in every neighbourhood of every country... It's a good thing something pretty came out of their friendliness...

LOL .. Great story line.. enjoyed the story as much as the pictures.. good job sharing.. So did the neighbors like the praire project better than the weeds?
