What is this green stuff you say?????

We finally got grass on the front and side of the house along with some more trees and plants.  The white pipe will be cut down and disguised as it is a water run off pipe.


 The tree that is closest is a Silk Lilac, and the other one is a Canadian Maple
 The tree to the right of the photo is an Oak tree that goes red in the Fall.
 They put in some more garden which is still to fill with plants
 This is a lilac tree that they planted.  Wasn't expecting that and pleased to see it.
They had started sorting out the back today and then we got some bad weather.  We now have a swimming pool in the back. 
This was the hail that came down. 
 More hail and it's still thundering out there.
All the neighbours pleased to see our grass as it tidies up the place.

Good grief that hail looks horrendous.

Nice to see the green stuff even though it's hard work keeping it looking good. Love walking on it in my bare feet in summer. Happy bare feet!

Yay for the green stuff - and not so much the white stuff falling from the sky!

WOW! You got hailstones! We heard thunder in the distance but only got about six drops of rain.

I bet you're happy to happy to have that drain in the middle of the yard!
We heard thunder and had a few drops but it mostly passed north of us.

I really like your house! The hail and torrential rain -- not so much. We have had some abnormally cool days here which really makes me fear for autumn and winter and I don't look forward to bad weather.
