Yesterday the house painters arived. Having your house painted is kind of like buying a new vacuum cleaner totally boring but a lot more expensive. They have been busy cutting away rotting boards and yesterday they power washed.
Now I know how a poor little bug feels buried deep in a tree, while a wood pecker is pecking away trying to get in. I don’t know exactly how long this will last but it can’t stop soon enough for me.
They will be coming back in the fall to do the decks and railings. I won’t let them near the decks now because my hydrangeas are in full bloom. I have 10 bushes, probably 5 different kinds. I really love them.
