Common Loon

Last night as I gazed out the window before going to bed I spotted this beautiful Loon quietly swimming and feeding in our cove. These are such majestic birds, I love watching them.

Weed Control Patrol

We are so thankful that our lawn maintenance crew, the Lawn Ranger, has people who just do weed control. The perfect combination of sun and rain has made this a gigantic weedy year in our yard. This worker is using a combination of weed whacker, physical pulling, and weed killer spray to get our yard […]

Gutter Guy Ron

It is so nice when my son and daughter-in-law come for a visit, you can be sure mom has a list of jobs that Bob and I are unable to do anymore. One pesky job is the clearing of debris blocking the gutter downspouts. After Ron cleared this one, great torrents of water whooshed out […]

Lawn Full of Clover

Help James! My lawn is full of clover.

Potato Plants are Growing

Everything is growing fast in the yard right now, and growing the fastest are the WEEDS!!

Flowers Blooming Everywhere in the Yard

The perennials are blooming beautifully, all that are left to break into flower are the Asiatic Lilies. Soon their riot of orange/red/yellow color will dominate the garden.

Summer Downpour

This morning was dark, rainy, and a place fit for ducks. The gutters were full, gushing rainwater through the downspouts. No need to water the garden today.

Two Big Duck Families

Lots of ducks on the lake right now. The babies are almost as large as their parents.

Hansa Rugosa

The roses are prolific, I have been dead-heading them every day.

Blue Poppies

The Blue Poppies in the perennial garden have reached their peak bloom.

We Make Salad From The Garden

Every evening at dinner time I go out into the garden and snip off just enough lettuce for our salad. It tastes so good fresh from the garden. I miss doing this during winter.

White Hansa Rugosa

The rose bushes are loaded with blooms, the yard is looking festive with all the color.

4th Of July Boat Parade

It has been a few years since we stayed home on the 4th of July and we were pleasantly surprised by the fun parade of boats complete with American flags that motored by our yard. Fun day.

Strawberry Covers

The strawberry plants are blossoming, soon juicy red berries will appear and the Magpies that have been hovering will try to turn them into a feast. These covers help keep the Magpies out. Otherwise we will have to pick them everyday as they ripen.

Blue Poppies Bloom

The front Perennial garden has an explosion of Himalaya Blue Poppy blooms. Just gorgeous!

Out of Control Plant

I can’t whack this plant, Bishops Weed, back fast enough, it seems to grow overnight.

Channel 2 News Anchorage, AK

As I was taking Princess for her daily walk we came upon a news reporter recording her story about the sign posted in our neighborhood. It was made by my good friend and neighbor and is designed to give information to deter a drug dealing group who live near her. The troopers have already been […]

Blue Poppy Buds

These are the most beautiful flowers when blooming which likely will be soon.

Sugar Snaps

These are so good when mature, we eat them right off the vines.

Spinach Going to Seed

I’ve got to go out and cut the seed tops off of the spinach plants. Wow, they are growing fast, too fast!
