a powerful prefix

As I walked along Trenerry Crescent in Abbotsford today, I was struck by the powerful message on this display board.

Somebody is angry about the development on the riverside and simply by overwriting the prefix 'con' with 'de' they've made their point.

It was rather amusing to continue along from the construction/destruction site and see that nature hasn't been entirely forgotten in this street. There's fake grass,

and even a living plant,

and the plane trees are fighting the good fight to remind us nature is rarely tidy.

a very powerful message indded!!!

and what is it with the fake grass??? i have noticed a few residences with this 'ornament' adorning front porches lately...

i also get a giggle out of watching people 'blow' those 'pesky leaves' away from the front of their houses...

proud womon, I had a one-off gardener to my place recently, and I said 'no blowers' before she came, but she was in love with her machines, and used blower, chain saw, trimmer. I was a bit disappointed but I guess I can't complain because I was out the back with her helper using my mulcher.
