Public sidewalk obstructers beware!
Last week we found this dreaded door hanger on our front door:
Has somebody complained to the powers that be? Are there people in our neighborhood who harbor ill will against us? And if so, why? I guess we'll never know.
Here are some snapshots of the crime scene:
Oh what thugs we are for letting our unruly vegetation intrude into the sacrosanct space of the city sidewalk!
What utter disregard for the rule of law and public order, not to mention common decency!
Agitators, provocateurs, rabble-rousers! Radicals, subversives, troublemarkers!
That kind of incendiary behavior won't be tolerated in the City of All Things Right & Relevant!
Having driven the fear of the law into us thusly, we meekly retrieved our gardening tools and proceeded to rectify our acts of insubordination.
Granted, in some places we're still riding the knife edge between order and anarchy...
...but we're hoping the enforcers of the law will benevolently acknowledge our efforts at restoring propriety:
|I know, that little rascal there is still intruding...|
|But look how non-obstructed this stretch of sidewalk is!|
The photo below has nothing to do with our transgression, but it makes me feel better. Why? Because the Acacia cognata 'Cousin Itt' is looking good, and because I have the luxury of deciding what to put in this container:
I'll enjoy the sweet nectar of procrastination a little while longer. I deserve it after our nerve-racking detour into the criminal underbelly. This fellow delinquent knows what it feels like to be on the wrong side of the law!
