Remember at the end of the last post where we made a veiled reference to "some interesting and fun" things going on in our backyard?

Well, it has not exactly started yet.

Pictured above is our backyard, taken from the guest bedroom window earlier today. As you can see, our lawn is in a state of great disrepair.

We're in a serious drought region, and long ago this summer, we suspended watering of the back lawn.

But, construction starts soon, on something new and cool in the backyard.

Here and here are pictures of some of the equipment that was dropped off today in advance of construction, and here is yet another picture of our grossly damaged back lawn.

In short order, we expect to not care how bad the grass used to look!
