A BUSY SUMMER WEEK


TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING?
These two pictures are from #13 fairway where water from heavy rains sat for a few days.  The areas actually heated up and turned the grass yellow.  Luckily,  we had a few cooler days and the areas dried out and they are almost fully recovered now.   Too wet is a bad thing in the summer!!!








Here we are installing the pipe that will hold the power wire for the fountain.  Our electrician has been busy installing the control boxes.  We should get the wire in by the end of next week.   We are shooting for the fountain to be fully operational by
the end of the month.  Stay tuned!!!!!


















With the heavy rain we  had some mulch wash out by the pump house.
Manuel has been busy making a swale with some rocks to give the water a place to go.    



















In the nature is amazing department:  This is a American lady Caterpillar on it's host plant Pussy Toes (Antennaria).   I found 4 of these plants at the nursery this spring.  They are only 6 inches wide and 3 inches high.   How in the world do they find these plants is truly amazing.   










Here is a picture of an American Lady I took last year.
