外構工事開始 in Autumn

t's finally happening! Grin.


First, it's Autumn. We're finally freed from the grilling Summer!

Second, the landscaping and exterior works started yesterday! It had to be delayed this long as since we've missed Spring, we'll have to seize Autumn the second best season for implants.

Before work commenced, I gathered some tall piles of beautiful pebbles strewn across the land, too good to be discarded in my opinion. Sweated hard for them, only to receive a cold shower from Bear who had intention of acquiring new pebbles from stores. Well, I could only agree with Bear after studying the piles later - the pebbles were generally soiled after being stacked upon each other and washing them out would mean another round of hard work.

So the pebbles would have to go ultimately, but I wasn't sorry for too long. It started pouring non-stop 3 hours after excavation yesterday. Precisely what we were hoping as it will soften and nourish the soil, thus enhancing the work. And also, the pebbles were getting themselves a good wash. ;)

I've checked the piles this morning and spreaded them out even. The fellas are now looking polished new. =)

So the pebbles are staying after all. Chuckle.

Tomorrow onwards will be a span of promised sunshine. God is good, all the time. And His goodness always timely. =)
