Spring is in the air and it's time to start gardening. These are before shots of the back border.
Cut to 10:50pm last night, Hoquiam police officer at the door, with our neighbor Allie, who's car had a brake failure and took out some of the fence. I figured it was the corner at the main street, which has taken some dings in the past.Yikes! The brake failed while the car was parked up hill. No one was in it when it went over, thankfully, no one was hurt.I could tell that half the forsythia was broken off, but I was so glad the car missed the lovely Japanese Maple that turns a brilliant red in the fall.
Not so lucky after all. The maple is completely broken off.
So, today will be spent talking to the police and insurance companies and if the sunshine holds for a couple days I see a chipper/shredder session in my future.
