Been gone for a while....

Hello all! It's been quite a while since I published a post. Computer problems, network crashes, work, and travel have trumped www communications. The arrival of winter has brought me indoors and back to all of you! Yesterday (Sunday night) we started to get our first snow. I had just started a retaining wall in my side yard on Saturday. Work in my yard is always the last of the year, of course, and since I am supposed to be retired from professional landscaping I thought that I could sneak this work in earlier. No chance. But the hillside is graded and the wall partially built - this project can wait until next spring to finish.

Here are pictures of the Sunday snow and the Monday thaw! Tonight we are expecting snow again. This is typical winter weather here where we are near the warm ocean and bay water and on the edge of a planting zone (zone 6 and zone 7).
