Oh, thank goodness. My keen-eyed daughter identified the problem with my computer not recognising my camera. There were tiny teeth marks present. Obviously one of the two little angel kittens that I was convinced couldn't put a paw wrong had found the cable irresistible. I just hope the cable put up enough of a fight to deter those tiny teeth.
These are the photos I took of the garden when I first moved in. Everything looks a bit disorganised, with things still where they were dumped in the big rush to just get things shifted, so I apologise for the mess.
A gratuitous shot of the two kittens and our big cat chilling

Looking out through the ranch slider door

This is to the right as you step out from the ranch slider, or to the left if you are looking toward the house

This is the back garden courtyard - those pebbles are proving a nightmare as weeds sprout at a great rate of knots

Looking through the orange tree down at the lawn. I had taken out a lot of the lower branches of the orange tree at this point to allow more light through

We refer to this area at the side of the house as Death Valley. It is the sunny side of the house, with both pavers and white pebbles flanked on one side by the wall of the house and by a tin fence on the other. The heat generated along this little alleyway is staggering. Clothes dry on the line in an hour - no exaggeration.

Self explanatory, I think

This is the little curve in front of the orange tree. Looking at the house it is to the left in front of the deck.

What a mess!!
