I Had to Share

So recently we've had some drainage issues with our backyard.  It has something to with how the yard was graded blah blah blah.  It wouldn't be that big of a deal except for the fact that the "issue" is that the water all ends up pooling in one area of the yard - the one place where Evan's play set will soon sit.  So, rather than have Evan swim to get to his play set, our builder came up with the idea to put in drains.

This is what my yard looks like right now... as they work on the solution:

(I know it looks like we have no neighbors but we do.  Currently it's a slab but supposedly someone might build on it within the next year.)

They are refilling everything as we speak but sometimes the solution looks worse than the problem.  Hmm... kind of like chemo.

But, since we are in Atlanta which I believe is a city that defines the word dichotomy - where a slum house and a fancy restaurant sit right next to each other for ambiance - right behind all this chaos is this in my backyard:

(Magnolia tree - already in bloom and carpeting my yard with beautiful petals and fabulous aromas)

(Camillia bush - native to the South and just gorgeous)
