Blue

Painters have been at work across the street for weeks now. Scraping, sanding. I really liked the way it looked with the natural wood shingles (still visible at the left). But this is what confronts me when I open the front door this morning. Blue! It's hard to see in the photo, but the handsome old brick and stone chimneys have been painted DARK blue.

Looks like there will be some new street trees in my very near future. I am feeling very blue about this.

Wow, I guess it's time to replace some hostas with well-placed arborvitae. Yikes!

What trees grow quickly or can you afford full grown trees to be brought in by crane and planted by professional. I hear Redwoods cover a lot of behind the scenes scenery, like blue houses. Good luck and make sure you get deciduous trees *if they are the ones that stay green all year long nad do not drop their leaves).
