While the Landing in Yuma may look pretty rough to some, it is paradise to my Energizer bunny. As Bob Ward told us when he was working on his bus, “If I close my eyes and put my finger on the bus, there’s something to be done right there.” That’s pretty much the way this property looks to LeRoy.
The trees on the east side had grown several feet over the fence, so LeRoy cut the offending branches. We have to get rid of them and all the yard waste later. The planting bed only had three living plants but he dug up a couple of struggling lantana plants and put them in the bed, along with ornamental grasses from other places on the property. There were four beds in the middle of the yard that had mulch in them, three square ones and one round. The mulch from those went into the bed where the flowers and grasses went. One of the square beds has been changed into a round one which will become a firepit.
In case I didn’t mention it before, LeRoy also has packrat tendencies. The stainless steel washer tub that is now the firepit was given to us by a bus friend in the second winter we were on the road.
It is just set in place, but I’m sure will look more finished when he’s done.
This morning, we got flu shots and went to Algodones to make an appointment at the body shop to take Liberty in to fix the hole she procured in Colorado this summer. That will be done next week, but first we get to see some of our favorite people, son and daughter-in-law Robert and Shelly. Since Shelly’s parents winter in Mesa, they’re just killing two birds with one stone and will be here Friday after spending a few days with her parents. Can’t wait!
