Israel is the guy who was in charge of trimming the trees last year. He also did a lot of work around the pool.
Well, I'm not all hot on pulling weeds, neither is Brian and the pool area was overgrown again. Brian called Israel earlier this summer, but he never called back. Yeah, he actually did, a couple of weeks ago. And the pool area is clean again as well as the grass that was growing over the pine needles and chips from last year in the front yard was all pulled last week. (Nothing was hauled away after the trimming, we just used it all as ground cover.)
Brian had another project for him, to replace the broken PVC pipe next to the house, the pipe that's supposed to drain the water from the driveway in the front yard. They started early this morning and it turns out all seventy feet of the pipe is full of tree roots and it all has to be replaced. ~le sigh~
This pipe is why I had no garden this year, this was where the garden was suppose to be.
Next year! Next year tomatoes and peppers and lavendar and catnip.
Bring on the rain! This year it had better not back up into the garage like last season.
