I have taken to referring to my new flat as The Jungle.
This is the view from my living room:
My front yard is so unkempt that we have minimal natural light in the house. It is so overgrown and covered with fallen leaves (turned mush), spider webs, weeds, once-potted plants, too-long tree branches and climbing vines I believe at least half of the yard doesn’t see sunlight.
Believe me, the yard extends much deeper into the distance than what can be seen here. I seriously wouldn’t know if an entire family of monkeys live under there.
Maybe I could hang out some bananas one day and watch a hand snatch it into the jungle.
Gee. THAT would be freaky. For my sake, let’s erase that thought.
If anyone has a pair of garden shearers to lend me (or perhaps more appropriately, a chain saw and hack knife), I would love to clear the space in time for summer barbeques – and charge my flatmates if they ever feel like using the cleared jungle. Ahhh..I am such an entrepreneur….
