Dear Rose is reading through my old posts and commenting on some. Which is a great thing for me, as I too then read the old posts as well. I have also been in touch with bloggers that I haven't talked to in a long while. Life goes on and we all end up with different priorities and sometimes blogs get left behind.
The gardeners finally cut the grass on Friday for the first time this year. The sprinklers have not been turned on yet, and we haven't had much rain so the poor grass looks miserable to say the least. I did talk to the gardeners; made sure I only talked to the one with a shirt with a collar on!! He said lack of rain was the problem, so sent an email to the property management, who in turn sent an email to the irrigation (sprinkler) lot, as yet have no idea what's going on?
We are going to put a proposal in to the board to see if we can put a 2 foot privacy screen on the top of our deck to give us some privacy. As everyone walking down the road looks directly into our deck.
It will go along both the side and the back of the deck (right hand side of photo.)
In this photo you can see a flower bed with a tree and shrubs in it, the left hand side of the photo:
This is a closer view:
That is all the builder put in? What about the front? Anything small and green are weeds. The kids doing the gardens use a hoe and cut the tops off and that's it. I need to dig them out myself. With the aggravation we have had about another issue I feel about as much like planting extra plants as flying to the moon!! Hopefully I'll get out of my strop and beautify the place up soon.
All garden maintenance is part of our monthly condo fees.
