I got up and started my Saturday chores. I looked outside and discovered that one of my conifers in the front had died almost overnight. When I went to pull it out I saw two neighboring ones that were also dying so I pulled them as well. I sent Kathy an e-mail and called Lance. I’m sure between them they will be able to tell me what happened. I also had to trim a lot from another cypress in the back and remove some plants from a pot, I think because they hadn’t gotten water, and Lance will address my sprinkler issues on Monday as well. It was heartbreaking to lose plants so fast, but I know it happens and most of my yard is looking spectacularly wonderful, so I am focusing on that. After all that, I spent the rest of the day finishing a review book and writing the review. The promised rain has shifted back another day, but hopefully it will come soon and be substantial.
