Nancy took this photo of me using the shovel to help the standing water drain into the channel I had dug, earlier.
I can literally not walk across the backyard, inside our 'property line' and not walk in water. It is much worse that before they 'messed' with it...
It will take time, but I will get it to drain... of course, we're getting cold and rain for three or four days the end of this week... so it won't be soon. But, now that I have one escape channel, I can work at getting the drainage working, slowly, for the rest.
Had three iris out, today... ;-)
Did I mention; it was a very nice day to be out working in the backyard of the cabin?! ;-)
