It is hard to believe that we have been here over two years. Yet, when I look around the yard, I see that all our hard work is paying off. We have a beautiful lawn, the additional second deck, ornamental trees now planted lending some color to the dense firs and deciduous trees surrounding us.
This year, the Pres has chosen to enlarge the original patio, making it triple it's original size. It will soon be the entire length of the house as well as another 2' wider.
Off to Home Depot we went to pick-up the patio blocks he ordered last week. Although I was concerned about the close to 4,000 lb weight, the Pres didn't blink an eye. He knew between the truck and the trailer, we would have no problems.
After he assured me the weight would be fine and while he was overseeing the loading, I ran into the garden center and bought a small Lilac. It only weighed about 25 pounds so I didn't feel like I was exceeding the load limit with it...LOL...that's what I told the Pres anyway...:)..."It's only a little one, Honey."
Once home we planted our new Lilac, gave it a drink and then it was time to unload the stacks of patio blocks.
Good thing we have friends in the right places at the right time!!
