Long time readers here will remember the flooding problem we've had in the back yard and all the work that was done to try and correct it. If you want to see how bad my back yard used to get you can look at this post
Well the work was completed this year and it seemed like it took forever for them to get here because of how wet the spring started out.
But hey, they did eventually get here and the work was completed. I can't say that I'm entirely satisfied with my lawn but we went the entire summer with NO flooding. We no longer have to stand by the basement door and watch for water to come in.
Here's what the back yard looks like now. I swear they must have used the cheapest grass seed they could find. Not only did it not come up very good but it's more weeds than grass.
After this was planted we ended up digging up another section when we put in the patio and we also installed a drain from our back door to the new drainage pipe they put in. That way any water that may accumulate near the back door will now go be drained off.
Since we dug that part up we planted grass ourselves. This is a picture of the grass we planted.
This is what they planted.
Will we complain to them about it? Maybe, maybe not.
So the new story.
A few days ago, Wade comes in and says that while he was sitting on the back step smoking his cigarette a little white butterfly was flitting around the back yard. Then he said it was the oddest thing, it landed on his leg and sat there for a few minutes. He said it must have been sent by Duke.
All weekend long we've been seeing these little white butterflies (probably more likely moths) flying around the back yard. The timing of their appearance could be coincidental but we think not.
