New Landscaping! Extreme Makeover!
Our New landscaping! Isn't it lovely? We had a bit of wind today, 60-81 mph
The tree house, the trees were pulled in different directions and ripped it apart!
Just think of it as new yard art!......maybe I can have Larry make benches out of the down trees...some are hardwood!
This was the "Thinking tree". It had 2-3 levels the kids could go to. They would sit up there and study or read (pout)
Remember the wall we just built?
We cant tell if there is any damage to the new garage, the trees fell between the house and garage,.....on to the new wall. It looks ok, we won't know until we get the trees cleared.
This photo was 30 minutes into the high winds
So far we have counted 8 trees down, and the top of 2 others.....hanging over the house!
This was the first "break" in the wind, see the trees behind the house?
Oh, Excuse me...that were behind the house.
Now just keep in mind our daughter Erika's wedding reception is on the 27th, here, at THIS HOUSE! She wanted a big informal family style gathering. Here. At home. We have at least 2 days of just chain saw work ahead!
Our closest neighbor came over, they suggested we have a theme reception.........Survivor Style. The games and contest possibilities are endless! LOL
But you know what? We are so BLESSED! no one was hurt, & our road is one of the few in the county we have found out that still has electricity. Over 400,000.have no power!
Maybe we will have a bonfire too........Gotta make lemonade!
