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!
