Friends and Kitties!
Sheebie here, with a Park Report.
Since there's so many photos, I left 'em small--click to biggafy!
I walked up to the top of the street, and we'll work our way back to my house.
Look what's in the center of the photo:
The Official Sign!
Looking down the street from the top--in a few years our street is going to be tree-lined and shady. Because of the long growing season the trees will mature quickly. Everything is drip irrigated and water smart.
A little ways down the street and into the park is this cool stone wall. I have no idea if it has any purpose other than to be interesting, we'll just gave to wait and see what happens next. That's an acacia tree in the foreground.
The wall has three different colored rocks--only two shown here (don't panic!)--and was all built by hand. There's been a team of stone-layers working six days a week for at least the past two months and it looks as if they have more to do judging from the quantities of rebar and wire mesh still on the job site.
This is the same type of tree we have in our back yard, a desert willow.
PaloVerde in flower
The landscapers have started on the smaller plants, too; there's agave and grasses and some stabby plant that I can never remember the name of.
Look--it's my buddy the Horny Toad!
The kid's play area has a ways to go yet. It's hard to envision the final look, so more on that another time.
These metal shade "sail" rest areas are also all along the bike trail, which is great for those 114 F degree days.
The restroom walls are large pond rock, again all built by hand. I'm curious to see how the gable areas are going to be finished.
(sorry about the glare)
From the restroom looking North. Check out my volcano in the distance!
Down at the other end, looking back South.
The view from our front yard...
...and up the street from our driveway.
I'm so excited!
Happy Sunday, and have a wonderful week!
