Five people, one cat, 800 square feet, and one bathroom.
My chickens have flown the coop, but while they were here, we had a great time.
Turf Totter, [my sister], and her family have just left, it was a surprise visit, but aren’t those the best kinds? I even managed to get off work a few hours early, to spend some time with them.
The den at our place does double duty as a guest room, and that is where the computer is, so I have had limited access lately.
So to get you up to speed, the Parottia, Persian Ironwood tree I wrote about in my last post is whirling it’s way up to the Okanagan. The timing was almost perfect. Buds breaking open, but barely any green showing, it should go through this journey to it’s new home with no problems.
It’s going to be so happy to be in the ground, and I can visit it anytime I want. In the end Gar came to the rescue, and figured out how we could just slide it on down the deck, and out the garden gate. We never had to lift it up over the brick wall after all. And that was a good thing, because the tree was heavy.
We have moved my Ginkgo tree to the now empty spot, and with some rearranging of containers there will be more room on the deck this summer. The ferns should still be shaded, and we will have a bit of trellis behind the ginkgo tree to block the neighbors view.
The neighbor from far across the street in the third floor apartment, who likes to “yuuuuu hhhooo” me as I sit on my living room couch. Hasn’t anyone heard of privacy on this street.
Ah, condo living… can’t wait to move to the country. Maybe I am wrong, but I think in the country the only thing peeking in your door might be the occasional wildlife.
And that is one “yuuuuu hhhhhooooo” that I am looking forward to.
