Please! Just don't hurt my hostas!
Here you see my yard yesterday. Peaceful and somewhat pleasing- a nice place to be-maybe even eat dinner.
Today the roofers came...and things have changed... They hurt my hostas. They thwarted some lilies and my lawn is in tears.
As it turns out the original roof was still on the building. This is to say that there has never ever been a tear off done. There were 5 or 6 layers of roofing on our roof. I know we did the right thing because this is way too much weight for our building, but it is not a pleasant for my garden --at all.
Here you see one of the cads that ruined one of my garden beds. Oh he seemed nice enough, but my hostas know different.
Here you see the state of the yard this afternoon- our construction fencing didn't do much good you see.
And here's me after work giving my Dad the low down on the damages. "Yeah, Dad, it's pretty bad..." Don't I look like someone who just got in a car accident or something?
Some good news though: we've got our power back. I think I neglected to mention that during some electrical work here we lost power in half our floor. Hardly a dull moment here this summer.
We're doing okay, but please...say a prayer for my hostas and lawn.
