Before & After: A New Hangout for this Rural Backyard

dreamstateinspbefore

I really enjoy reading stories about people who take huge leaps when buying a home and this is a great example. Kristina and her boyfriend lived in busy Portland, Oregon when they decided they were due for a change. After searching high and low for almost 2 years, they finally found a gem of a house in the beautiful rural countryside.

The couple saw potential in their new yard and knew that it was perfect for a tiny campsite. They got to work right away…branches were chosen for the tipi and a small guest house was built and painted. They tidied up the fire pit area and split lots of wood for fires. Of course, there were a lot of other things they did in order to bring the yard to life, although Kristina says that they still have a lot of work to do. But for now, I think things are looking great! Nice job Kristina!

Still Quiet

I hope you can understand my continued quietness.  I am re-working a number of things.  This site is getting not just a visual makeover (due to be completed in a couple weeks), but, as it is a direct reflection of what is going on in my professional and personal life (and literally in my brain),…

Long after other Digitalis have taken the summer off for vacation, the rusty foxglove or Digitalis ferruginea is flowering during the warm days of July and August here in New England.
