In honor of Dr. Seuss, the stepping stones (difficult to see in all that bamboo litter which I'll go out and blow away right after I post this.) One fish, two fish, red fish blue fish.
Nearby are "Three fish in a tree, how can that be?" also from Dr. Seuss.
And, of course the C bed.
Here are a couple of new offenses:
When the gardener should have been giving the topiary tree a much-needed haircut, instead, he removed the tasteful brick edging around the circular bed and did this...(you may wish to avert your eyes.) Yes, trimming the tree will come right after cleaning up all that bamboo litter!
The newest assault on your senses, with apologies to Ernest Hemmingway is The Old Man and the C.
I know it's hard to cope when things like this happen but perhaps someday we'll be able to look back on it and laugh.
