It has been a busy week.
We set our goals high,
and as I walked around this foggy morning,
I see progress!
The house still looks
tired from a long winter...can't wait to
see it surrounded
Nature has decided to give
us a little gift,
buds on the Maple trees!
This Maple has a hole
at the bottom.
I think we probably need to fill it.
But on this foggy
as I wander my
yard with Boston (50 miles away) on my mind,
I dream of little mice in tiny coats

We have made so many
piles like this.
So many branches down.
The lavender is showing signs of life.
Some branches have been cut.
We are trying to do a little everywhere.
This is the first year

This old soapstone sink sits as part of our

but I just can't seem to part with it.
The lilacs are budding....one of my favorites...
I trimmed the ivy on the wall...

so strong, it damages the wall if we don't control it a bit.
This one makes me very sad.
My window box fell during a heavy snow.
Buy one...or build one....
It's all good...it will get done...and
