These Guys Broke the Mold...

We had a lot of rain this spring.
Days of rain and clouds, and very little sunshine, to dry things out.

Everything became green...
including the driveway, the deck....everything.

The driveway developed a thick slime.
And, after I slid and bruised my tailbone on Father's Day,
going out for the paper,
our daughter and son-in-law came to power wash.

We have a circular drive.

So...dear son-in-law...who has no 'off' button...spent over 
washing away the slime.

The slime was thick, and it was slow-going. 

But now, it almost looks like a new driveway.
If I fall now, it'll have to be blamed on something else.

They left the powerwasher for Mr P to use on the deck.  
It was pretty black and moldy.
Amazing how just water can wash that away.

I thought the porch wasn't quite that bad.
But, up against the clean, you can see it had to be done, too.

The older generation doesn't work as fast, but it's finally done.
We just have to seal the wood now, and it should be good for a while.

Sitting here this morning with my coffee, I'm loving the clean.

And, as an extra bonus....it smells so much better.

Life is good today....

Happy Gardening...
