This photo is looking over my front garden, past
the bamboo and the cedar hedge to the trail through the park. It adds quite a
nice vista to our property in the winter time.
This is some of the activity in the park across
the street from our home. The parks people put in the paths, took out the
srubby trees and planted grass seed. The plan I saw said they were going to
plant a few trees too. This is the area that had a couple of old homes on it.
When the houses were taken down the space was just left as it was for a couple
of years. I called this area the deer pasture. Now we see all kinds of
activity on the trail. Before they made the park I had my cedar hedge topped.
It works very well. We cannot see the road past the hedge but we do see the
trail from our front windows. Soon our front tree will leaf out and we will not
be able to see into the park.

I have several time consuming hobbies that I enjoy. Gardening was my first passion. When I got my computer my garden suffered some neglect but for all that the garden still looks pretty good.
To those two I have more recently added photography. Photography relates to all of my hobbies, as well as to travel, and seems to tie them all together.
I have a high maintenance, wonderfull husband, who remains the primary interest.
