  • Last Visit to the Lower Garden

    Since virtually nobody ever reads my blog, I am posting these pictures I took only yesterday. We felt it would probably be the last time this season we’ll be able to go down the hill before the snow and ice take over.
    It is my all-time favourite place. I feel so peaceful when I’m down there. The world and all its cares just disappear.
    Next Spring, once the frost is out of the ground we can start creating that rain garden, take some chairs and tables down, plant out some new trees and shrubs.
    Some day I’d like to build a Japanese tea house somewhere on this enchanted plot of land.

    Two large burn piles. Charlie and Ralph will be doing this once there is a layer of snow . That way the burn is safe and won’t spread.

    Over the last 7 1/2 years, Charlie cleared the entire acre of huge ugly Manitoba trees, bushes and scrub singlehandedly. He is in such great shape, he’d put men 20 years younger to shame. Make that 30. I think it’s all that back-breaking work that put him in this shape. Now the trick is to stay in shape over the long winter. Well, there is shoveling snow but that’s not nearly enough.
