Over the River

Over the River

and through the woods. KBJ has 2 drones that he uses for work and he occasionally takes it up in the air around our house to test one thing or another before he does his filming for his documentary work. Well, he ended up getting some pretty cool shots from above our home and I thought it would be fun to share a few with you. I thought seeing these might also give you some perspective of our outdoor property and gardens, so when I post about something regarding the gardens you might remember ...Continue reading...

Many of you have emailed me asking how the Newf, left to me by my late friend Carole, is doing. You can read my tribute to Carole here. She came home with KBJ and me from Atlanta as Lucy, but Carole knew that I would change her name and why. Way back when, my late husband brought home a goose along with a baby goat.

Rug, wall to wall or ...Continue reading...
