So I'd been looking at the condition of the road thru Tanglewood for a bit and noticing some areas that needed some attention.  The culvert below the driveway is getting nicely filled up with the miscellaneous rock I pick up from along the canyon road, with about a half dozen or so every week (some more, some less).  But the normal rock of the road is what needed some beefing up, so I decided to move some rock.


I don't have the late lamented Blackie any more (he was a good truck), so I borrowed one for a day.  It took some time to get it up and operational (it was of course nearly out of gas, and the battery was virtually dead) but eventually I got one load brought up.  After a quick lunch I ran down for a second load, and now it's all sitting out in two pile on a tarp outside the garage apron.  Tomorrow I'll be spending some quality time shoveling two tons of gravel into various places--the Gator will come in quite handy here!

In somewhat related news, I decided to hold on the main driveway retaining wall for a bit until the various flowers that are in that section (mostly just thistles and wild raspberries, but they do still make flowers) have done their thing for the season.  The primary reason for this is because of the bees (I'm such a softie).  While the bees don't find much nectar in the flowers from either of those two plants they do provide a whole lot of pollen.  I just rip up those plants that they're getting food from--that would just be rude.....

So I'll hold on the retaining wall for now.  Certainly I have other stuff to do anyway (like that huge pile of gravel).....
