Strange Fall Colors

I’m not sure what is going on with the Paper Birch trees, but this is the coloring on the leaves right now. Is it caused by a bug, or what???

Duck Invasion

While I was away traveling in Seward Bobs caregiver decided to feed the ducks. There were over 32 ducks on the lawn when I returned and they have taken over the dock. I have a note on the bucket of cracked corn now saying “Please Do Not Feed the Ducks”. Lots of poop everywhere.

Our View of the Eclipse

Disappointing, but this was our view of the Eclipse yesterday.

Alaska Glacier and Wildlife Tour

I had a chance to take a little R&R for a few days, so my friend Pat and I drove to Seward and took a glacier and wildlife tour. We got to see our son and daughter-in-law, and shared some awesome meals together. Thank you Ron and Janine for finding tickets for us to use […]

Fireweed Topped

I’ve been told that once the Fireweed tops it will be six weeks to winter. That would make it the first week of October, just about right.

Veges 2017

The garden has reached maturity, I’m picking Snap Peas and pulling Carrots almost daily. Some of the Potatoes are large enough to dig up, we had two last night and they are very tasty! The Squash is beginning to mature, and I’ve already harvested all the Broccoli, Cauliflower and Brussels Sprouts. All in all the […]

Nasties and Petunias

This has been the perfect summer for growing flowers, just the right amount of rain and sunshine. My pots are all full and overflowing.

Hosta Blooms

The Hosta plants are full of blooms in the front yard Perennial garden.

Retaining Wall

The wooden retaining wall that was built a few years ago is holding a planter full of Roses, Ligularia, and Wild Iris. A very lush border.

Stepping Stones

A few cement pavers were leftover from paving the garden bed, they make nice stepping stones leading to the garden path out near the road.

Garden Path

The Paper Birch trees that I planted 10 years ago have grown tall and with selective pruning have created an archway over the garden path.

Vegetable Garden

Fortunately I picked most of my broccoli last week and froze it, because it has already gone to seed! The Sugar Snap Peas are so tasty that we pick them raw and snack on them in the garden. Miss Princess puppy loves Sugar Snaps. The carrot bed is densely planted and is yielding sweet tender […]

Potato Beds

The potato beds are yielding small new potatoes at the moment, I dug some yesterday and added them to the crock pot with ribs. They are sweet and tender.

Perennial Explosion, Petunia Pot

The Petunias are beginning to cascade down the sides of the pot. Our Asiatic Lilies are exploding in the Perennial Garden. The yard is alive in color at the moment.

First Produce From the Garden

The garden is growing beautifully and is so easy to care for with everything planted in raised beds and the new drip watering system on a timer installed. Now all I do is pick an occasional weed, this sure beats all the years that I cultivated the ground and had to stoop over to weed. […]

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!!
