Here comes a whole bunch of photos...I will attempt to catch up!

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...
A tissue of membrane beyond which glows unborn life...
There are more new-old pictures coming...

A little bit...

pleasant little storks..: )

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."


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!

 ..And a wild favorite of mine with shamrock leaves--the Oxalis!

Building the Shop...

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


Sandpiper near our puddle!

"Scenes must be beautiful which daily viewed,
Please daily, and whose novelty survives
Long knowledge and the scrutiny of years."


Stephen looks from his limit to the gallant height of the guys...

The winsome Deborah

Stefon helped today : )

Hard workers!

A fat bumblebee squeezes himself in--what a funny fellow he is in his yellow waistcoat!

Wild Blue Indigo is one of my very favorites!

Pass me the ___ , will you?

Elisha brings food to the deserted kitties : )

A short break for discussion!

Dad brings water out to the workers
Yes, another photo of these.
The last.

Stephen enjoys the scaffolding! (He does have a set "no higher than that" limit!)

The Mastermind


Geometric Art

Tag etc. : )

Now the day is over;
Night is drawing nigh;
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.

The light catches the pitcher so beautifully here...

Fare thee well.
