Puddle swimming--a cool thing to do on a hot spring day--though we haven't had many of those!
Stephen is having a fun time!
Brown study



These berries were green--they have been black and eaten since!
Lavender is very medeival. The leaves are even fagged--like the sleeves of the before mentioned ancients...
Embryonic. A tissue of membrane beyond which glows unborn life...
There are more new-old pictures coming...

dear and sweet!
My yellow rose begins to bloom!
"A Sensitive Plant in a garden grew, And the young winds fed it with silver dew; And it opened its fan-like leaves to the light, And closed them beneath the kisses of Night."
--Shelley
These are not acually called "sensitive plants", but they act the same! Stephen charmed me regarding these, and here is a little journal excerpt explaining; "Stephen and I were standing in my garden where I had just showed him the withered and senile ( but still legitimate ) watermelon plant, when he crouched down and said, "Look, there/s one of those!" (Stephen habitually is an exception to MacPhee's theory of male ways of expressing themselves--not ever using pronouns) It was one of the pink pom-pon plants whose leaves are sensitive to touch and close up--he had recognized it by leaf shape alone--there were'nt any flowers yet!"
How much delight Mom and Dad have given me through this rose!

I love these guys. They build such an awe inspiringly large building


"Let's get the height right..." Silly Stephen--our ever amusing youngest

The first trusses going up!
A glorious sunset Here he is!
Our present road
When Deborah got tired of biking, --Ben took her place!
Employing himself while the guys butcher!
A Slideshow with freinds
Tranquility
Sandpiper near our puddle!
"Scenes must be beautiful which daily viewed, Please daily, and whose novelty survives Long knowledge and the scrutiny of years."
--Cowper
Stephen looks from his limit to the gallant height of the guys...
The winsome Deborah
