Even though it was a very wet day on Sunday, we couldn't stay inside like sane people but had to go out and dig up some bamboo and cut back what was left. Didn't get a truly before picture but think of the bamboo all being as tall as those stray tall pieces near the blue evergreen. Things are so easy to dig up right now!
Why do this chore on such a day? Well, because something was arriving today that demanded it. What could it be? You may have guessed that it's a new refrigerator since ours stopped working on Thursday night but that won't be coming until Tuesday and wouldn't require that a space be made for it. Look there, out on the street, taking up most of the bed of Judi Hook's truck.
Looks a little 1960's science fiction movie ish to me or maybe like one of those Christmas ornaments folks used to make with pins, sequins, beads, etc. Remember those? The kits came from some craft catalogue.
Here's the path to the back yard before the installation. Sorry, I was way too busy during the installation to run inside and get the camera. Did I mention that the rain was pouring down like we maybe should have considered building an ark?
Here it is after. Loree tells me that the mud will wash away eventually. Tom on the right and Judy on the left both stayed relatively dry while I, wearing no coat, became drenched. Oh well it feels good to be inside, drinking coffee and writing about it in dry clothes.
It's certainly different from everything else in my garden.
