People obsess over the state of this 5-bed house & it’s not the dated kitchen or dirty bathroom that’s got them talking

PEOPLE have been taken aback by this five-bedroom house in north London, but it’s not the location or ample space which has got them talking. 

Prospective buyers have slammed the sprawling property as a ‘house of hoarding horrors’, after photos reveal it’s stuffed to the brim with junk. 

The colour of the house was described as 'pea soup' green online

The ‘pea soup’ coloured house sounds like a dream on paper – five bedrooms, two bathrooms, two reception rooms, a massive 50-foot garden and 1,743 square feet of floor space. 

But as soon as you step inside, it’s a very different story. 

Every room is piled high with junk, with garish wallpaper, mismatching tiles, dated kitchen cabinets and the wallpaper is falling off in one photo. 

The house caught author Sarra Manning’s eye last year, and she tweeted about it after spotting it was back on the market for a cool £960,000.

She said: “I posted this house of hoarding horrors last year. 

“Now it’s back on the market with a small price reduction and maybe they’ve had time for a declutter and a lick of fresh paint. 

“AND MAYBE THEY HAVEN’T.”

House Democrats prepare to vote on new economic relief bill even as Pelosi and Mnuchin keep talking

“We’re going to give it one more serious try to get this done and I think we’re hopeful that we can get something done,” Mnuchin said. “I think there is a reasonable compromise here … It’s something the president very much wants to get done.”

It was unclear, however, if a deal could emerge in time. The House is set to adjourn within days through the election.

In absence of a deal, House Democratic leaders were preparing to move forward as soon as Wednesday with a vote on their $2.2 trillion bill, which is a slimmed-down version of the $3.4 trillion Heroes Act the House passed in May.

It includes new stimulus checks, unemployment insurance, state and local aid, and money for schools, the Postal Service, election security and more. There is also payroll assistance for airlines that are facing the prospect of widespread furloughs as soon as Thursday unless a new aid package is passed.

Republicans oppose the bill as too costly and say it contains provisions extraneous to the coronavirus.

“This will be nothing more than fiddling while Rome burns,” Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) said Wednesday morning as the House Rules Committee met to agree on rules to debate the legislation.

“We have to move forward because some may be content with doing nothing but we aren’t,” said Rules Committee Chairman Jim McGovern (D-Mass.).

Pelosi has been under intense pressure from moderates in her caucus, including some in tough re-election fights, to take new action to address the continued economic and public health ravages of the coronavirus.

However she has shown little sign she’s willing to back down from her $2.2 trillion price tag, with Democrats contending they’ve already compromised. On a private call with House Democrats Wednesday morning, Pelosi said the American people are worth the $2.2

Gonzales Garden Club gets back to talking about gardening through virtual meetings | Ascension

While the coronavirus has forced many people to cancel plans and activities, gardeners have had more time to tend to their flowers, shrubs and plants.

Members of the Gonzales Garden Club talked about the measures they took to keep their plants growing during a Sept. 2 meeting. However, it wasn’t their usual gathering.

After months of suspended activities, the Gonzales Garden Club turned to the internet for its first meeting for the 2020-21 season.

Fourteen members attended virtually with the promise that more members will access the video conferencing program next month. President Jamie Trisler followed the routine schedule of the pledge, prayer, roll call, old and new business and featured program presentation.

Members cited examples of the impact the pandemic has had on their gardens. Many said their time spent at home resulted in outdoor success. Some stayed away from plant nurseries and bought seeds online; others propagated from what regrew or had young loved ones bring them plants and mulch. A few ventured out to nurseries with masks as their only “essential” outings.

After recurrent family setbacks, Dale Bowman was able to “get all caught up” in her beds this summer. Janis D’Benedetto concentrated on vegetable gardening and grew “more than enough tomatoes.” Conchita Richey noted that she “worked in the garden the entire time. It was my salvation.” Gwen Heck said her five-year-old garden is now “the best it’s ever looked.”

The program this month was “Pollinator Plants” by member Mary Jo Pohlig. She presented photos of 26 of her plants that attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds and gave unique details about each, commenting on their growth habits and needs. Her favorite easy-to-grow pollinator plants are Mexican flame vine, purple porterweed and zinnias because of how much wildlife loves them. Other reliable sun-loving bloomers include begonia, cassia,
