Let It Always Be Remembered as the "Backyard Massacre of 2012"

April 4th & 5th, 2012.  When the slaughter of most of my backyard "yard rocks" took place.  The wounded of the first day - recovered from the battlefield - are the only survivors.  Currently, they are too traumatized to tell their stories.  As I tend to their wounds, they will reveal more of the story.

I regret that I was not there to protect them.  I thought I had moved them to a safe locality, but the backhoe constructing the new septic tank drainage line found them and the geologic carnage ensued.

And I won't even be able to talk about the encircling rock wall and the wildflower garden, for a while.

Gone, but not forgotten.
