When we bought Lot 9 in 2013, it was the cul de sac in the front but especially the expected view from the rear that made us smile. The woman we worked with at Robert Thomas Homes spoke in colorful language about the wild flowers that would bloom–a variety of species and a whole bunch of colors blooming throughout the spring and into fall.
Last year we decided she was full of bologna as the backyard seemed to be full of big weeds (although some did have color) and very few wild flowers. She reminded us it would take a couple of years and so we didn’t complain too much.
So what’s happened in summer number two at YellowDoorWorld? Well Mary wasn’t kidding after all. The views from the back of the house really have been lovely. A myriad of whites, yellows, purples and greens have been blooming since spring and it really is so lovely.
So, similar to that old Hitchcock flick noted in the title of this post, while we’ve waited in suspense, the outcome from the rear window(s) is actually quite alright!
