Living in a semi-rural street

We live on a semi-rural street - the kind where everyone knows their neighbours really well.  We share vegetables from our gardens, look after each other's pets, etc.  When we first moved in the neighbours to our left were a peaceful artist woman and her osteopath husband.  They were quiet, gentle, spiritual people.  The next people that moved in were not so quiet and caused many issues.  Now, after 3 years they have moved out and a quiet, gentle young family has moved in.  They like to garden and say hello to us through the fence.  Amazing how one house can be home to so many different kinds of people.
