Happy Fourth!

I've been trying to find a song to play here, National Holiday. It's midway down the list. You may have to click past a pop-up warning, srry! Or, these guys have an Am*zon Link, if they let you listen to stuff.

Looking at the Garden

It's a little intimidating, because I've been told by the locals this house and grounds were "the Crown Jewel of North Hoquiam!" and "I moved to the Harbor 25 years ago and that place was a Showcase!"

Here's a partial tree list, with pictures!

15 Rhododendrons
5 Azaleas
3 Magnolia

3 Apple Trees
2 Cherry
1 Fig
2 Pear

6 Peony plants
3 Blueberry Bushes
Striped Variegated Bamboo

2 colors of Wegelia
Snowball Tree

Salmon colored Quince

Salmon Berries!
2 Japanese Maple

Hardy Fuchsia
2 Camellias

And somewhere in the neighborhood of 40 roses. I'll try saving as many as I can, but they are on very aged and damaged root stocks.

Day One of Our New Life.

Here's a photo re-cap of the last couple weeks. We are eternally grateful to Rudy and Andy for pitching in and doing whatever needed to be done to get our butts moved. We really couldn't have done it without them.

The big truck of the household arrives in Aberdeen.

The cat who will not stay out of boxes any other time proved to be quite a difficult capture. Bubba is now quite happy in the new place.

There's a lovely dock just 3 blocks away.

The "new grandkids" get fishing lessons from a local dad.

Back to Seattle to empty out the storefront.

Still much to do, and we decide it will take one more truck.

The truck has a definite tilt. It must be the all books that lean to the left...

And now it's all in storage until the remodel is over.
