In the light of day,things tend to look different.
Looking back on yesterday,I realize things could have turned out a whole lot different.
Just 30 minutes before the tree fell,YardBoy and a friend were moving the canoe…(I finally convinced him to sell that thing!).
But,today,has brought a new light to TheGreatWall.
In the light of day,the tree/pool look like this….
more cracks are showing up as time goes on.
Adjusters have been here.
So,today,is a time for counting our blessings…
Miss Emma’s Garden survived….
but will need to be removed,temporarily.
And Dad’s orchids were truly blessed…
Can you believe the branches missed them?
…but most other plants will be lost….
no time to remove those before the tree removal.
The poor La Toilette planter took a hit….
Nor,is froggie who sits,contemplating,on the bowl.
Sorry,but I love,love,love that darnn planter!
The tree root ball and the rest of the tree are due to be removed Thursday.
The pool will have to be demo’d and replaced
(waterfall…?… all the family is kicking in with suggestions already…),
so plantings need to be removed,
More retaining walls?
Guess there is gonna be a total reworking of TheGreatWall…
Interestingly enough,this blog was started to keep family and friends up to date with the renovations,here…
Well,here we go again!
It’s gonna be one Hell of a ride!
