You know that age old trick question..."if a tree falls in the woods and you didn't hear it, did it make a sound?" So I've got a real true to life question ~ If you can no longer see your pond is it really gone?
I woke up in the middle of last night thinking about all that needed to be done here. So despite the nearly 90* temps this morning decided I'd better start disposing of the pond's carcass.
After I removed the rocks (remember those posts?), and transplanted flowers from inside the corners to the yard. And even after the men removed wood framing this very heavy liner remained. The backhoe pulled it and debris remaining inside to the back of the shed.
There were 3 sandbags left, several bricks, a few rocks which had fallen inside during the pond's life and decomposed leaves. The wooden T shape is the result of a fight the backhoe had with the end of my clothesline pole and the backhoe won. A neighbor has since put in a new one for me.
Below are 3 sections which when put into my dumpster filled it up more than halfway. After the trash is picked up tomorrow I'll cut more for pick up next week.
Also the back deck needs to be power washed and sealed. I have the stuff to wash it and plan to do that myself. If I can borrow a sprayer I'll also seal the deck but hope to get my grandson to do that for me and bribe him with pay.
Am going to enjoy a glass or two of vino and hook this evening and not do yard work tomorrow. Happy hooking.
