Wednesday Vignette: Lucky!

I sometimes marvel at how much my garden (and life) are guided by chance -- luck even. A tree falls and somehow misses everything in the yard, a volunteer or two grow in just the right spot to make things amazing, and things like this:

The main electric cable needs to be replaced in your neighborhood but it's located on the other side of the street!


This has been going on for several days now, work crews running pretty huge underground cables between the transformers on the street.

The "directional boring equipment" has been going gangbusters -- in fact the have two of those machines now.

My bamboo-heavy hellstrip escaped the digger's scoop this time!

All digging has been across the street -- whew!

For more vignettes please visit Anna at Hum and Flutter where you will find a wide variety of interesting topics usually more related to the garden than this one.

Whew indeed! Thank goodness your hellstrip was saved this time. Fingers crossed for continued good luck!

Looks liked you got lucky. Wondering if it was a storm or just a dead tree do to fall.

Fate was truly on your side this time around - whew! I love how lush and green your neighborhood is. I'm slowly working on inspiring my tree-shy neighbors...

Score! Our street is due for some sewer repair work, I am trying not to worry...

Patsi: The cables are underground, so it was just age and the elements that got to them.

Anna: I've inspired at least two of my neighbors, maybe three. We're getting there. :)

Loree: sewer is usually under the street, so I think you'll be okay.

You picked the house on the correct side of (a very lovely) street. Green! Trees that are alive! Refreshing to see that.

Sometimes, every once in a while, good things do happen to good people.

Oh man, I'm having nightmares about a power or gas line running through our yard having to be dug up.
