Home Pics



Ok,  here's a few pictures of our new home.  Keep in mind that These pictures were taken about a day after we moved in, on July 1.  You may see some boxes, and not everything is at it's final resting place. Also, we still have lots of decorating to do...I think we'll do a fine job of decorating it, though!

10-27-01 Inside FirePlace with Fire.jpg (63871 bytes) What good is a fireplace without a fire in it?  Well, it recently got cold enough (way down into to upper 40s) to light it.  Nothing like the crackling of a fire.  Can't wait for our Christmas Eve fire!
The Loropetalum by the pond bloomed in February, 2002.  Brilliant purple flowers, the whole bush seemed to be ablaze.  It lasted nearly a month, too
Recently, we started to redo a section by the pond.  We removed the low growing "green stuff" and raised the bed a bit, adding a walkway and some annuals and perennials for color.  Azaleas and Kalanchoes provide nice perennial color.
Summer 2002.  A view of the back yard. 
Summer 2002.  A view of the pond
Summer 2002.  Our goldfish have had babies.  There are well over 4 dozen gold fish here now.  Perhaps the mood lighting and soft music had something to do with this population explosion?
