Construction

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence
The old.....
First, I have a funny story.  Last Saturday was Mom's b-day.  Miss Kathrine, landscape designer at our nursery, told her to be ready to go out at 7:30.  Okay, we were all ready and there they were.....Mr. Dave (owner) had a bee-u-tee-ful Primrose plant for her, Miss Kathrine put a tiera on her head and a black boa around her neck.  The other two guys (too cute for words) drove the backhoe - yes you are reading correctly, up to the garage and up Mom climbed, Miss Kathrine was in the bucket and they had their picture taken,  the title "Queen's Revenge".  Talk about fun!!!

Back to today....yup, we are under construction, and yes, you can "move a mountain".  Here are some pictures...

 Mom's "convertible"
Getting the new...
(Retaining wall being built)

I'll show you the "all done" pictures in a few weeks.

Heaps of Hugs

  7. A very happy birthday to you Joyce!! Omg you have a lot of work to do if I look at the pictures. First it's a mess but when it's done you'll be so happy. I love your property and surroundings.It's seems a nice neighbourhood.
    Prudence do you expect snow in your area? Or does it never fall where you live. Otherwise you might take a sleighride down the hill one day ;o)

    Heaps of hugs and have fun with your gardenwork, Thea x
