|The Mexican redbud in the center of this photo was|
the first tree to be planted in the backyard today.
I wanted to have the stream in the backyard running by the end of the day today when my in-laws arrived for a visit, but I was denied. An electrician is coming Monday to chase down a wiring problem, and Jay will finish cleaning out the pipes and turn on the new pump he installed today. I am really excited to have the stream working again. It was my favorite feature of the house when we bought it, and it hasn't worked since then. Fold it into the existing and planned water collection system and the solar energy for the power, and I am feeling pretty confident about running it full time. Heck, we *could* have a pool....
So now it's time to give Baxter his last meds for the evening and to fall into my sunburned eyelids. Goodnight all.
