One day til framing...

Tad installed the joists around the perimeter of the new addition today preparatory to the timber framers arrival... (Due tomorrow despite still waiting for a part?) They are the "rock stars" of New Energy Works, and it will be fun to watch them work. Maybe they will show up in a limo...!

Another one of our gardens:
This is a maze composed of 250 arborvitae (now 12' tall) with blooming forsythia and picket fence marking the entrances. The circular form is borrowed from a 15th century Italian berry patch. Come visit us and try to find your way to the middle!

The burned-down double tear-drop shaped perennial display:
Each Spring we flame away last year's growth. In a few weeks time, the area will be covered by a variety of grasses of varying height, texture, and color. Nature's regenerative powers never cease to amaze...!

Our 40-year old raspberry plants await new growth. They reliably produce annually and are used gratefully on breakfast cereal and in a number of tasty desserts!
