I've been compiling a "project book" for TRAC and found this picture of the flower bed across from the DQ. The photo was taken the day we (CCA) finished construction. I'm not sure of the year, but "the hill" as we refer to it, is at least ten years old. We recently planted red zinnias and yellow lantana in the beds. They are beginning to establish themselves and actually look much more colorful than this new photo taken last week indicates.
But I thought you might like a transition photo. I'll take more tomorrow when we water them. Maintaining the hill has been a challenge. We connect 300 feet of water hoses to the DQ faucet and drag them across the highway and up the hill twice a week. Our hope has always been that someday a water system would be developed for it. Now we face a new challenge. Someone has apparently purchased the adjoining property for a new business and wants permission from the state to level the hill so that their view won't be obstructed. I understand the need for a business to be seen. However, I may have to voice an objection to destroying our little bright spot unless we can reach a compromise on a new location for our flowers. We'll see. In the meantime enjoy the view!
