Well the fellow who farms the field across from us finally mowed his ditch. He hit the power pole which carries phone lines . Hitting it once and it swayed, that was scary. There's a transformer on the top.
So he backs up and hits it again, cutting the phone lines.
He did not do such a good job mowing either. My neighbors lost all their phone service. Thankfully I did not. This was on Saturday afternoon, so the kids next door will maybe get the lines repaired today. The neighbor went out and told the fellow mowing what he had done and pointed it out. The fellow has the nerve to tell the neighbor then maybe you would like to mow this ditch .What gall !! My neighbor told him he had a bad attitude and needed to be more careful.
In the mean time... something pretty has happened. I saw one clematis flower blooming, at the top of the plant. Our clematis is finished blooming in June and I have never seen one this late here.
It rained again yesterday. We've been getting little pop up showers...although this one was a pop up storm. Some lightening and thunder.
I mostly did household chores this weekend. Plus some letter writing. Hope all of you had a good weekend and did some fun things. XO
Wow about the farmer and his attitude. Sorry he hit the phone lines. I have a clematis that is huge and never flowers just gets the beautiful bush of leaves. Not sure if I have to do something with it to get it to bloom. It is big and healthy just never blooms. Any ideas???ReplyDelete
Kris, That farmer has been a crab a long time to just be in his 40's...we used to mow the ditch for him and he got mad that I piled the grass clippings around the pole...now we let him do hid own ditch. I looked up things about clematises...it said there are 300 species.. It did say it may that several years for the vine to flower vigorously. Also you could add some limestone and wood ash. I would try Miracle Grow. I know you have it on a trellis, right...thin wood laths or wire. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
We've been getting a lot of thunder storms here too Susie. I love thunder storms and so of course, I love it...my little dog however, does not.ReplyDelete
That post took quite a beating from the mower. I wonder if he'll take it a little slower next time?
Wishing you a great week!
I like soft gentle rain or even a thunder storm that isn't heavy. I think our cat used to hate them too..she used to go to the basement.LOL. That farmer needs to do it right or hire a good farm hand to help him. What a Crabby Appleton...:):) The phone co. have already fixed it. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Wow, so sorry for that fellow's bad attitude. If you can't handle what you're doing, then don't do it!!! Have a great day!!ReplyDelete
I think the neighbor set the fellow straight..the phone company has fixed it this morning. Yippee. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
He's lucky it was the neighbor who set him straight and not a knocked out transformer. Hope he learns to be more careful. Geez.ReplyDelete
The clematis is so pretty. We had some of that at our old house.
Nonnie, That is about what the repairman said this morning. LOL I have loved the color of this clematis. I was walking around the house and there was one big flower at the top. They've been gone for some time now. I just thought how strange..but smiled when I it. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Sorry that your neighbor farmer is an idiot. Not nice at all...glad you didn't lose service. Geez, some people. I have not seem a clematis bloom this late, either! How nice is that? The autumn clematis has started blooming here. We re did the trellis for ours and cut it way back to get it off of the old trellis, so hoping it blooms next spring.ReplyDelete
Tete, I know what autumn clematis is.. I love that..it's the best smelling. I hope your comes back. I need to grow some on our fence. Hope your birthday was a good one and that you had some cake. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
Yep, some people sure have the gall....so rude and so many don't seem to give a darn about being nice any more.ReplyDelete
BJ, We would still be mowing that ditch for the farmer if he had not be so rude about me raking the grass clippings around that pole to help kill weeds. Now he can just mow his own ditch. The phone company fixed the lines this morning. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
That's pretty scary! I hope it doesn't happen again. I had a quiet weekend which was very nice. Sweet hugs, DianeReplyDelete
Diane, The repairman said that is not good to be bumping a pole with a big old transformer on top..could be very dangerous. Glad your weekend was nice. Bless your heart, xoxo,SusieDelete
Thanks so much for stopping by!ReplyDelete
Hi Debbie, I enjoyed your photos. I like to see what you do with your patio and porch too. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
We could use a good thunderstorm around here! I wouldn't mind a little bit of lightning to go with it!! Actually I would love anything to break up this 38 days without rain and hot temps. At least it hasn't been 100+ this week!!ReplyDelete
We have a big telephone pole with a big trandformer on top right next to our gazebo in the back yard. The big bush that kept it hid has died and not it is just so VISABLE!! I wonder if I could decorate it with some debris like I did our insulated water faucets??
Linda, It has been a crazy year for weather...I know it's been the same for you...either too much rain or not enough. Those temperatures you are having there are way too hot. We have two ugly pole in our yard they are in the fence line that helps. The one the farm rammed is across the road but the transformer on it would cover our area. You are thinking right Linda, some times it's best to just incorporate the things we have not chose on right into our landscape. Blessing, love you, SusieDelete
So glad you didn't lose your phone service. Sad when people don't take responsibility for their actions!! Love the Clematis!ReplyDelete
Gert, There are way too many people who will not be responsible for there actions. no scruples. I am going to see if any more flowers pop up. :):) Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
Wow, that man really has an attitude problem. He seems to have a pretty big sense of entitlement. Apparently he was never taught that there are consequences for your actions. xo LauraReplyDelete
Laura, That young man pretty arrogant. It's not his land , he rents it to farm , so I think he could care less. My neighbor, who normally is so calm...may have got a point across. Hope so. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Oh my gosh, this is really one of the prettiest flowers I've seen, Susie. The color is exquisite, a deep purple. I'm not familiar with the clematis, but it sure is a lovely one. Great picture, and my favorite color.ReplyDelete
Well I would have told him where to stock his mower.Hot and sweaty here. I also battling an annoying computer. If I wasn't going to you know where in about 3 weeks I would purchase another one but I that's coming soon.ReplyDelete
