The Demise of Eden

Sunday, July 09, 2006

Due to the fact that my dad had all the flooding at his house, somehting horrible has happened. We got rain on friday and their place flooded again. In order to make it not flood with every rain, they have to dig up their front yard...completely, and re pack it. If it was just lawn, that would be ok, but Dad and Marnee have spent at least two years working very very hard on making htteir yard in to a thing of absolute beauty. These pictures? they are nothing, these were taken last summer. before the waterfall was finished, before a lot of the plants were in. what they are digging up now, its how you would imagine Eden looking like. I am horribly upset for them. They worked so hard, put so much time and effort and LOVE into this yard and now its all ruined. Life is not fair sometimes!

This first photo is of foot prints in the bottom of the water filled pond, I originally took them becuase my uncle was dissing my new camera something awful, and said that there was no way my camera could capture it because I needed special filters for the water and stuff. HA I showed him. I kept the photo cus its damn cool!

Now there is no black earth it is all filled in with beautiful plants and bushes.

The rocks were brought in truck load by truckload by an uncle of mine. they come from Manitoba. There are a lot more rocks now, and they are laid out more.. gracefully, if that makes sense.

This is while the pond and water fall were being built. Not the best photo due to the shadows, and these dont show the true beauty of the yard as it is now, but you get the general Idea. I wish I wish I had taken the time to snap a few photos of it when I was out the weekend before the flood!
