~~~FALLING leaves.....in JULY???!!!~~~

 I know. Is this crazy or what? I guess because it has been so HOT and DRY....NO RAIN, the leaves are starting to fall already! You should see the driveway, it is even worse.
 This is what the deck looks like right now. And I swept it night before last!
 I don't remeber this happening this bad in past years at all.
 And this is the back yard today. The septic is done....well they thought it was done but now they have to come back for one thing. I won't even get into it. The whole thing is making me a bit crazy by now. And that pipe will NOT be sticking out of the ground like that when they finally do the final grading and seeding.
 Remember that the birdbath surrounded by flowers used to be here? And where that one lonely azalea now is used to be the BIG japonica bush. Joe is actually out there right now digging, edging and going to mulch some then we will plant some flowers in the circle around the azalea. The birdbath was a little to the right of where that pipe is now.
 See that pile of brances there? Joe discovered that they BROKE 2 large branches off the Japanese maple when they piled all the dirt. GRRRRRRR....
 They came off this bush:(:(:(
 This is the rhododerdrom that was lying on the ground for a week. I don't know if it will make it but we are trying.
 Joe is going to...
 cut off this big limb to give it a better chance.
So that is my update for today. On a better note, they are doing the under basement drain pipes today, at the new house, so tonight we will go out to see and I'll get some shots. Stay cool in this HEAT!!!!!!!!!!!! XO, Pinky


  1. I can't believe what they did to your beautiful backyard! What a big mess!

    I laughed at your comment about not seeing a beach table at a beach house! If you peek back at my post from last summer and the summer before, there are quite a few!
