Arriving in Edinburg, we discovered that the spring floods had killed all the sage bushes, the red bud tree, the mountain laurel, the Mexican olives, and most of the lantana.
The biggest loss was our perfectly pruned mesquite tree. It had to be removed.
We replaced it with a medium crepe myrtle.
The Mexican olives were replaced by small crepe myrtles.
The lantana replacement is nice and blue.
Stanley must have pulled and hoed a ton of weeds.
But he still found time to relax on the swing.
