Geocache Description:

You will not find the cache at these coordinates but they will work for parking.

There is a letterbox in the short stone wall but that is not where the cache is hidden.

This puzzle is very easy to solve but once you find it will you have what it takes to sign the log?

If you had solved this before and not yet found it you will need to solve it again. I had to move it since it kept getting muggled and last time someone placed a letter box in the location. It is now in a better location. On to the puzzle.

Ben was a pain in the butt to Bruce and Betty. It seemed like Bruce began every single day telling Ben to bug-off. One day Ben decided to try and make amends so he bought Betty some Begonias. Ben was worried that Bruce might be a little upset by the pretty blue begonias. (Just in case you don't know, Begonias are flowers.)
Of course those Begonias, with their long bamboo like stems and clusters of beautiful airy blooms, looked absolutely beautiful in Betty and Bruces yard.
But then those begonias began to take over the yard. Those flowers were taking over the entire yard leaving no room for the kids to play.
Bruce decided that those begonias were beginning to become a real bother in the back yard. Because the Begonias had taken over the backyard, Bruce called his buddy Buck and had him bring over his big yellow backhoe.
Betty looked out out the back door and saw what Bruce and Buck were up to. Now, as you can imagine Betty was not real happy with Bruce at that moment.
That backhoe had done a real job on Bettys big blue Begonias. Buck and Bruce had left only one bunch of those big blue begonias growing in the entire yard. Betty forgave Bruce and Buck because she knew those begonias would grow in again.

Now that you have solved the puzzle I would recommend that you avoid doing this cache at night. I would hate to have the noise waking up the entire neighborhood.
