More fun than I should be allowed to have.

When I first got into lighting a year ago, it was suggested by someone on this forum that once I got started, I would choose to forget all about doing general landscaping.

Today, it was only about 35 degrees with a little breeze added for nip, (although sunny), while I was working on redoing the lighting on a beautiful estate.

I ripped out old, wet Hxxxo in-ground lights, old wiring with pierce point connectors, an old XXX transformer that was putting out more than 13.5 volts from a 124-volt primary. I had to maneuver under a weeping Japanese Maple which draped to the ground and try to dig an 18"-deep hole with my soil knife in a corner behind the tree to place a new transformer mount.

There's still lots more to be done, but after dark with a few lights complete, I was able to see what I had achieved. Work? This is way too much fun!
