If You are Happy and You Know it...

View of backyard with giant dead azaleas gone! The hurricane trees killed off my large plants.
Landscaper (in big hat) discussing pruning with worker.
Semi-obligatory Elivs image in Southern Backyard. Poor whirly-gig survived Katrina but has "issues". Still, Elvis has NOT left the building as you can see.
Big truck with cherry picker to prune trees!
Backhoe. Strong people to do work. I AM HAPPY. Stump grinder coming. Pitiful greenhouse to right about to be torn down and replaced!

I am happy. Look at these pics of our backyard. Big machines! Workers! A landscape architect!
Piles of dead branches! Is this GREAT or what???

I found matching shingles for the three little holes in our roof which went unnoticed until I heard a lead in our shower light fixture.

I see progress. Progress means change. Change means hope. Hope is good!

Yours,

I am so happy for you! It's been a long time coming, hasn't it?

I wasn't sure what you heard in the shower, I wondered if you had "flipped your lid" and thought you heard Elvis coming to lead you in singing in the shower!

Yay!I'm so glad you're finally getting some workers to do some work in your yard. I know seeing dead trees and bushes on your land was driving you bonkers.

Elvis has more issues than just sitting in a backyard, post-Katrina, but that's another story...
