Surprise Santa

November 10th, 2010 (03:08 pm)

Santa came to The Compound early this year disguised as Timothy J. Lambert. Two droughts this year pretty much finished off my yard, so I've been focusing on keeping the flowerbeds and the potted stuff alive. After some raking, bagging leaves, and repotting and shifting plants, this is a section of the yard behind the house the way it looked on Monday night:

Then, PRESTO! This is how it looks now (in the rain), after Tim gave us an early Christmas present and had someone come sod the yard.

Next up: The removal of that tree. Sorry, Tree Huggers, though I'm one of you, this tree keeps killing my yard and providing safe haven and highway for rats, who need to relocate to some other family's tree.
