well, another weekend up north without a contractor...so we succumbed to the calling of the great outdoors and the 3/4 acres that has not had much TLC in, what we believe, to be about 6 or more years.
one of the many highlights was this little olive tree distraction. we needed to get some gravel at home depot (to use a gift card up), but they did not have anything very interesting in their gravel/rock selection. bummer.
in my shock and awe of home depot not having the gravel, with my head down and on my way from the garden center back into the warehouse box of home depot, i heard something/someone calling out my name. i followed that gentle sing-song of a voice to the place where this olive tree was standing. the 10am northern california sun was glistening just so on those silver lined leaves and branches and it was as if the king was coming to hillside and he demanded this tree/spirit be present.
ok....i'm sure i have totally lost you all in my rambling, but the point is it was a match made in heaven. the real miracle is that it fit in the car :)
the zinc container somehow made it to sf from france and then onto our property, courtesy of my friends coco and fred. it had most recently been a table for the tv and vcr at hillside, but i think it is perfectly outside.
