Can you see the differences in these two pictures??
Pretty amazing how two plants are nice and green and flowering when the rest of our flowers are not looking so hot thanks to the drought and the lack of rain. Last night I was outside with J while he was watering the yard and we started commenting on how the plants were not looking so good even after having some rain last week. Then I looked towards the street and noticed the two plants that were flowering. Instead of being amazed this time around I said to J - OMG - check the water, we must have a leak again. So J removed the cover where the water meter is located and sure enough there was a leak!! The same thing happened to us last summer except we did not realize it until we opened up our $300 water bill!! So that means another call to the plumber. :(
Just this weekend J and I were patting ourselves on the back on how we've been actually building up our "emergency" fund and how we have a little extra money for when we go home to MA this week. Guess we'll see just how much "extra" money there is after we write that check to the plumber.
Seriously...Murphy's Law needs to forget our name for awhile!!
