What about the flowers? What kind were they and will they survive?

Glad you got it fixed and nobody was hurt. I think we all have these stories...



It all turned out good, except for the extra unwanted work that I created for myself, especially on a near 100 degree F day, with a heat index well over 100.

Even under a tarp, with my "special" radiator fan running on high speed, it was still hot. Just in case you are wondering - it was NOT a DRY heat! Lol...

Thanks.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Glad you weren't offended. One thing about Pt Cruisers. People either love 'em or hate 'em. I fall into the love 'em group.

I also like the looks of the Woody trim.

Thanks!

That's what I really enjoy about this group. Someone always comes up with a different point of view, that is just really funny. I like it!

Unless the goal, (it wasn't), was to bend the pipe into a 90 degree angle, then no, it's not alright. Lol.

Thanks for the laugh.

They are Iris's. They are in pretty good shape, and will survive just nicely.

Thanks.

Funny back story. Years ago, I was working on a house, and we had some mums planted at the one end of the house. 3 different plants of mums, all the same color - yellow.

Due to some spring construction, we ended up trampling all over one of those mums, during a work day, while it was wet.

My wife was really upset by the end of the day, telling me that we had killed her one mum plant.

I told her not to worry, as it would survive, and might even thrive. She didn't believe me.

By the time fall came around, that mum plant that we trampled all over, was 3 times larger than the other 2, which were not trampled on.

I told her, it gave the plant time to grow bigger roots, which would support a larger plant. (I don't know. I know very little about plants, but it sounded good)!

We've had a running joke about that mum plant ever since. Had a lot of laughs over the years.

NO, that does not give you permission to stomp all over your wifes plants, OK?

Not really a fan of the PT Cruiser. For some reason, it reminds me on an AMC Pacer. To each their own, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Had some irises we decided to get rid of so I mowed them every time I cut the grass. Figured that would do it. They came right back the next year. Gotta respect a plant with that kind of perseverance. They are now allowed to grow unmolested.

A PACER?????? Now, THAT was an UGLY car! Lol...

Years ago, I mowed off a couple of Maple tree plantings, accidental at first, and then on purpose. Couldn't kill 'em. Both of those things grew up into HUGE trees.

Years later, I got to cut one of them down.

Now here's something you can do with a PT. All you need is a person who is good with body work.
