In the last week, and especially in the last few days, the progress on the north half of the Square has really made some significant strides! This photo was taken Monday morning, as they were starting to fill in the concrete pad of the fountain:
As you can see, trees have been planted (and not just little twigs – nicely developed ones!), but there is still quite a ways to go. But today, with the blacktop being laid and the bollards in place, it all of a sudden looks near completion!
The south half, however, is still a giant sandlot. The crew has been doing A LOT underground – cables, electrical, irrigation, etc. Every day it seems there is a new hole being dug.
And I apologize for the lack of updates. We have a mourning dove nest right next to the ladder to our roof, and I feel bad for creepin’ out the mama dove. Today, though, she didn’t fly away from the nest – either the eggs are REALLY close to hatching, or they already have.
