The virtual tour continues… (See the The Tour – Part 1 if you missed the beginning.)
If you’ll remember you had just followed Clara through the arch of wisteria (and, crossing my fingers it will take, my clematis) and past the garage.
As you step out from behind the garage you’ll finally see our house.Cute as it is don’t get distracted and keep your wits about you. Clara’s favorite tree is just along the sidewalk and I’m sure by now she’s in position to show you her tricks.Many unsuspecting people (myself included) have gotten bonked in the head by the end of the branch as she jumps off the one she is crouched on and leaps to her right to grab the next branch! (Yes, the contusions on her face are from her tree climbing adventures how did you guess?!)
If you can manage to avoid any concussions you may get lucky and see one of the few redeeming factors of the plethora of hostas that surround the house.
I know now that you are finally standing in front of the door you really want to check out the inside but look at Trip-
He is waiting very patiently to meet you!
I’ll even promise to keep him from jumping on you if you promise to keep a secret. Please don’t let him know that a dog who climbs on top of cars and jumps on top of round bales would have no trouble leaping this cute little fence!
Speaking of dogs… what do you think about this spot?
The overhang on the back of the garage is set up as a potting bench and looks to be a perfect area to harden off plants coming out of the greenhouse. On the other hand, it would also make a perfect spot to turn into a dog kennel with a small covered outdoor run and access to the garage. It’s a big decision. If you’ve got any brilliant thoughts let me know!
Well, as usual, I don’t have any idea what she said, but she sure had a lot to say!
Now that she’s busy throwing wood chips in the water lets go check out my shady vegetable garden.
Yeah- I know- tomatoes don’t really ripen so great when they are in shade half the day. I’m thinking of planting grass seed and a much needed clothes line here next year and finding a new spot for the garden.
What do you think?
Don’t worry we won’t stay too long, there’s still lots to show you!
