After Nick's graduation weekend - came my Mom's 38th birthday weekend which was also the same weekend as father's day... So I went to visit them and get my haircut.
The next weekend was my birthday weekend and since my mom is 38 that makes me... 14! Yuck... don't want that... I finally got to the house that weekend but came back to quarter end craziness and no time to update anyone.
I had Friday off from work and drove up there that morning. I got a landscape contractor to rebuild that retaining wall in the garden area and he was going to finish up on Sat. I have lots of pictures of the wall, lizards, bugs and birds.
The area were the wall was built was cleaned out and that included a debris pile of rotting landscape timbers that was home to lots of lizards. They have now moved to the wood piles and I think there are at least 30-50 around my house. I remember last fall seeing dozens of 1-2 inch long baby lizards and the wet winter must have been good for them. I am okay with lizards because they eat the bugs.. of which we have some good ones.
Like what the heck is this? It was dead but at least 2 inches long and just yuck!
Butterfly in the weeds... we have lots of these.
What kind of moth is this?
This was after they had removed everything and poured the concrete footing. Because it is such a steep grade you can't just use a sand or gravel base. Everything will slide...
