Forest Gardening PART II
Part I of our adventures in Forest Gardening began in 2006. Forty-one photos later I decided my slide show was beginning to put even ME to sleep. So here is more of our on-going retirement saga.
3 of 17: 1-23-2011 It's worth having a little flooding in order to enjoy the interesting contour of our property.
4 of 17: 2-3-2011 The new gate is FINISHED! When the weather warms a little, Von will put it up and construct short fences on either side of the gate, just for the beauty of it.
5 of 17: President's Day 2011. We built a fire in the wood stove and and played cards in the Cowboy Cabin! Good way to spend part of a winter day.
10 of 17: 2011 June 1. New gates are going up in Dragonfly Forest. This is the main entry at the end of the trail leading from the front of our property.
11 of 17: 2011 June 1. This gate is on the east side of the Dragonfly gardens area... deep in the forest.
12 of 17: 2012 Memorial Day weekend. This is the gate on the west side of Dragonfly gardens. Von built it in January but didn't get it put up until late Spring.
14 of 17: 2011 June 11. I find wonderful treasures at thrift stores. This enchanting screen door was only 25 cents.
15 of 17: 2011 June 11. This little tin Blue Bird and her mate.... came from a local gift shop. They were bent and had a little rust so they were marked down.
16 of 17: 2012 Memorial Day weekend. The little screen door and the Blue Birds are along the trail leading between my forest gardens and the front of our property.
