It comes With the Territory

March 30, 2012

I am sharing a bit more of our spring snowstorm we had almost two weeks ago. This ivy was not affected by it whatsoever.. The following are a hodgepodge of photos..

We ventured out of our yard and took in a few sights of our community…Ally, our most curious cat….

Yard art…

This is the waterfall that Forest Falls is known for..We have noticed that our appetites have increased. It must be the higher elevation and fresh air, plus we are still working hard.

There are different birds here. Sparrows are not common like they were down below.. We get to grow different plants such as Gardenias  and Azaleas because of the acid from the pine needles and oak leaves. It’s a whole different learning experience. The sun is out, the snow is melting and our next project is to have new wood flooring installed in the laundry room and kitchen. A neighbor recommended someone for the job and he is really reasonable. I think I will be painting this weekend.. I am thankful for all.. (:

    A Western blue bird, I think. He’s lovely, and I’m sure a lucky sighting. I can’t help thinking of the Bluebird of Happiness! What a beautiful area you have moved to!
