Changes in the Garden

The ‘before’ picture taken from our kitchen door facing the Rock House. If you really look, you can see the Rock House back there behind the overgrowth, the ugly yellow tank, the weeds and saplings.

Same shot take two days ago. We have spent a good amount of time down there, clearing brush and saplings, cleaning up and clearing out, trimming and pruning. Travis, with his strong back and I, with my eye for layout and bossy attitude even managed to make a set of stairs so my father can safely navigate the hill (not shown in picture). Mark and I went to NC and transplanted rosemary, lavender, oregano, sage, lemon balm and columbine. You can see a few of the more impressive transplants in the photo. My vision is becoming reality. I love this part!

This a gratuitous photo of me which illustrates the kind of week it’s been: I. Am. Frazzled.
See the crazy hair? The cigar? The jelly jar of wine clutched tightly in my fist?
Being close to the water helps soothe it all away.
