Posts are in. Fencing is tacked into place. I need to finish that.
This winter we will make bird houses for the tops of the posts.
Post with reflectors is marking an old iron pipe that needs to be removed. Tom will then widen the drive just a bit more and we will get some fresh gravel.

Tom got a trailer for the boat. He replaced the seats with new boards. Working on boat mount area so it is a bit higher.

Early Morning

Been busy cleaning up some more of the backyard. 
Native Rhodies are blooming.  Huckleberry bushes are surrounding Rhodies.
Very beautiful.
 Turned around and looked back. The chair propped up on the right is near my workroom door.
 This is looking out my workroom door towards Myrtle tree.

Bought a small chain saw for clearing out some more brush at the end of this lawn. It will open the view back up.

  Finding all kinds of lovely items in the bushes. Tires will be used for a raised bed. Path on left behind Myrtle tree leads down to dock. Blackberry patch along pathway. Blackberry syrup...
Path at right of Myrtle leads through wild sweet peas and joins with other path. I will take a picture when they bloom. Old ceiling fan with large aluminum paddles was buried in bushes.

 Seal was out there in the water this morning fishing.

From inside the house this morning. For Susan

Starting to do a bit more gardening. There were no flower beds. So I am working at it slowly. The driveway turned out to be a propagation bed for Red Hot Pokers. They certainly like it there. As the borders develop, I will move them out and about, but leave enough to act as beacons on the edge of the drive. Deer are a problem of course, I am trying to put in things they don't like.
Uh huh... 

 This is where the old drive came in. Eventually it will have a concrete bag wall at the base and have a bit of terracing 
 Shed area that had been torn down before we arrived. Vinca everywhere. I am removing it. Lovely concrete floor and walls. I will use this as a spot for special potted things.
