Where I live

Monday, November 19, 2007

Hi everyone
Well these photos were taken at 5.30 am this morning... I am suffering from the flu but wanted to update my blog before another busy week started... My garden, even though we have been here for 17 years is still pretty young but slowly things are starting to grow... The hydrangeas and violets were planted when we finished our pergola earlier in the year.... I have also taken a photo of the side of our house where we have planted a small grove of apples, pears, nashi pears and a white mulberry on the end... We get really bad westerly winds (hot and cold) here and this little grove will hopefully protect us a little better from those one day... The last photo is taken off the deck outside my studio... Hopefully this countryside that I love stays for a while longer before progress of new housing comes.... Have a great week....
