Yard of the Month

The Garden Club will be over any minute now to award me Yard of the Month.
It's a good thing Charlie mowed yesterday and I stacked up the bricks and cinder blocks so neatly.
Too bad the ladies of the Garden Club don't have any place to sit and have a nice cold glass of sweet tea...since Flint came over and took the patio out this morning.

I thought he was coming over tomorrow.  Imagine my surprise when a Bobcat showed up in my yard.  At 9:00 in the morning.  I was sound asleep until I heard the guys yelling to each other over the noise of the Bobcat.

Flint took out the sidewalk too.  The new one will line up with the back door.  This makes me exceedingly happy.
They uncovered a very old sidewalk that led from the original back door (which is now the kitchen door) to the cistern (which is now covered by a small patio).  It makes me a little sad that this will be covered back up.

In fact, a lot of this mess will be covered up with concrete when I get a new patio.  That will be sometime next week.  I think.  Unless a cement truck shows up tomorrow.


  1. Too bad you can't work in the old sidewalk -- hope you get to sleep in tomorrow

  2. Is the old sidewalk concrete, or is it stone? If it's stone, you might think about how you can incorporate them into your landscaping.

  3. I can't tell you how happy I am that you'll get something that lines up with the door. That was driving ME nuts and I don't even live in the same state! :)
