Farewell dear garden.......

It was Thursday and it was "Spare the Air" day in San Francisco. "Spare the Air" days are inform people that the Air Pollution level is above 100 and everyone should try and not pollute the area. Gordon was working from home on this day and his parents decided to take their first 45 minute BART trip to our house since BART is free on "Spare the Air" days.

While Gordon was working, the parents decided it was a good time to "trim" the plants at the back garden.

When I got home after work, the parents will just finishing up... imagine my surprise, shock, horror to find all the plants GONE..........

The parents decided that the plants were not useful and snipped the all off. The first picture shows some frens in the garden about a month ago.......the other three pictures show the snipped off plants.......:S
This is a sad day. Both for me and for the environment. So much for "Sparing the Air".

I did thank them for their hard work. After all, no one told them they were not suppose to clean out the whole place.... right?
