Just a few minor glitches around our waterfall feature this year...
First and most IMPORTANT:
I was weeding atop said waterfall last week when I reached down and came eye-to-beady-eye with
Well, I think we all know how much I like snakes....
Just ask my dear sister-in-law Sharon who was on the phone with me at the time. I think I might have blown her ear drum out. Sharon, please forgive me.
Let me just say that this horrible, horrible creature was not afraid of me. No, no. He was just layin' there catchin' some rays while simultaneously taking years off of my life. Poof! Ten years obliterated from my life span as I ran like a crazy woman to the inside of the house.
O.K. On to the second problem. Our waterfall which was only installed 2 years ago has a leak.
A BIG leak.
No sooner do we fill it up, it's empty again. Do you know how hard it is to find a leak in a waterfall that now has flowers and shrubs growing all around it? We have to call our pond guy and see if he can fix it. I'm sure he'll be thrilled. About as thrilled as I was to find yet another snake. I hate snakes! Have I mentioned that? Really, that's all I care about right now. Where there's one - there's more. And after this debacle happened to me a few years back I am seriously contemplating moving into a condo!
