 Someone has shredded the prairie restoration project I had planned for the property next door. The house is still without any inhabitants, but at some unseen time parties unknown took to mowing, decimating rare dandelion species, removing several weeks of hard earned wild growth and destroying vital habitat for neighborhood critters.

What isn’t known is if the owner dispatched the mower, if the city instigated the work under the nuisance ordinance or if it was the work of a fellow neighbor who tired of the eyesore.

There is still a “for sale” sign in the yard, so if anyone out there is looking to buy …

It is unclear if the mysterious third-party lawn care arrangement will continue the purchase.

On a related note, buyers will get a backyard pile of last autumn’s fallen leaves as a bonus.
