Hello dear friends!
This is why I have been absent the past couple of days...
When we bought our home last year we were excited about the beautiful water feature that runs along the North side of the property....
However, with Spring, come the weeds...and all kinds of brown and green things growing in the little puddle at the top and the slightly larger puddle at the bottom...uck!!
Oh, and did I mention the frogs? What a serenade we are treated to every night!
So we have all been out weeding with the little ones, cutting back pampas grass, and watching an entire pickup bed of weeds be trollied off to the yard waste site (With much satisfaction I might add!)
Still tons and tons more to do, but I have rolled up my sleeves and am dedicated to getting it all in order!
There is a lot of plant cataloguing to do yet, so we know exactly what we are about, and can plan what to remove, what to thin out, what to add, etc. It is very exciting but yikes! there is a lot to do!!
When the mountain is out, (Mt Baker, above) you can see her clearly centered over the red arch that is at the top of the lower puddle. You can also catch a bit of the sound in front too! It is quite something to sip a hot cuppa tea and just take her in!
Hope you enjoyed seeing a bit more of our home ~ I will be around soon to check out what you have all been up to, I promise!
