With the children starting back at high school tomorrow, for me the summer is well and truly over and fall is here despite what the calendars or others may say.
We were a tad overambitious with our backyard with not quite as many of our summer projects being ticked off our list as hoped. However this is our wonderful new fence the Hubster created from old pallets. Isn’t it just fabulous? It pairs well with our Japanese Maple!
The backyard is still very much a work in progress but this fence alone has made it feel so much better already. Our kitchen on the other-hand has come along in leaps and bounds, woohoo!
All this is very different to the “behind the scenes’ with this blog. A sure tell-tale sign you’ve not posted for a long time is when you go to write a post and nothing, and I mean NOTHING, is the same. The entire layout and setup is different. Goodness, the times they really are a changing!
Having the baby deer visiting in our backyard is a glorious way to commence our summer. They are just so darn cute and seemingly always full of energy and curiosity!
Not sure how they’ll take to all our work in the backyard over the summer but hopefully they’ll approve. These little cuties at least should prove to be fabulous mascots. There’s a lot, and I mean a LOT, of work planned for our backyard over the summer with fences, stairs, and leveling hoping to be ticked off the list.
Consequently all this work will have me away from the computer for a good part, if not all, of the summer. With that in mind I wish you all a safe and happy summer creating wonderful memories however you choose to spend your time, and I look forward to catching up with you again in the fall!
What a delight to see one of my Bald Eagles down on the rocky beach below our house instead of tucked away on the branches of our tree. The branches which neither face our house nor allow me a clear view of them, grrr!
With such an abundance of bird life this spring I thought I’d begin a “Feathered Friday” to introduce you to just a few of the new, and not so new, arrivals!
