"The Gardens at Cicada Cottage"
It is Thursday afternoon as I write this. I took these pictures early that morning (and was interrupted by one of "my guys"--the irrigation guy, Jeff (but Hazel kept calling him Jack) who showed me how to turn our well access on and off and told me he would be careful digging around the roots of the Four Oaks. Right now Seth is wading through another day with Ms. Marciano from New York in 1st grade. Lucy is arranging colored pencils in the window sill. Hazel is taking a super nice nap with all the windows open in my King bed. And Avery is talking herself into a nap in the guest room. The perfect time to give you a sneak peak into the flora surrounding the house.

Clearing paths of mean sprawling weeds
I know we probably will someday, but I never want to move from here. I could spend all day strolling these places.
