Looking from Jo's across my piles of Pennsylanvia Flag Stone

Looking from Jo's porch toward the Smith's yard shed

Day of the Triffids . . . ish

Looking toward my back door . . .

From my Cyprus Tree . . . he's feeling a little puny


August 2019 - update on the house work and gardens

August in the porch . . . oscar showing us around

covering the couch as I'm preparing to paint the pantry shelves

The early August Backyard

Our toad hole

The oakleaf hydrangea always looks good, and the heritage rose has spawned a little bush

The moonlight hydrangea has had a tough year

Our new griffen bench, eventually headed for the front of the building

My yard is filling up . . .

and still have mulch to spread

The officer in charge . . .

Dining room and lay down area, there is a corner cabinet behind that piece in the corner.

Kitchen from the backdoor - Jo doesn't like the clock there . . . where should it go?

Moving around the Kitchen

Spring 2019 - the yards!

Jo's back door, virginia bluebells, moonlight hydrangea

a peak at the new holly hedge and across the back porch

pin flowers amongst the sedam, better look at the holly hedge

azeleas border the hydrangea

and trying to invite a toad for the toad home . . .

all the grass is gone, mulch spread, peonies are coming along

our busiest corner behind the rose, and oakleaf hydrangea

not working in our birdbath corner as a family of cardinals has taken residence

here is mom in her nest

and on my side . . . all the grass is gone!

added a oakleaf hydrangea and cyprus tree

moving things around a bit yet

all along the fence line . . . we will get rid of the chain link!

my side looking to the house, mulch still needs spreading more

my holly hedge and the new bench near the house

opportunity . . . so much area to decide on filling . . .
