At your request oh Queen of the North Woods…and evidently the Himalyas, Paris, Peru, and Oz

Our place.

and like Tom I’ve not video tagged this gem. Please excuse the weird title work at the beginning…didn’t feel like rerunning the edit.

what a wonderful tour. Oh how I’d love you to come to my house and design my gardens! That is exactly what I’d love my place to be like.

THank you SO much for taking the time to give me a tour. I really appreciate it. It has inspired me to start making more flower beds and paths. Oh Rick is going to love this! haha.

I have about an acre of land and most of it is “front yard”... who spends time in their FRONT yard?? I have planted many trees near the road and some day they will have created a lovely little “forest” barrier but until then, it is wide open space. I can see how some bushes/trees/arbors will really make it private and livable.

Thank you ; thank you ; thank you!!!

Beautiful yard, & garden Bob. Very pleasing to the eye.
It looks like you’ve been Rocking, & Rolling. A nice Video also.

Thanks all…....we love it here. It’s going to be tough when we decide to sell.

Deb…I would suggest you learn Sketchup. I know the learning curve looks steep but it’s also great for planning landscaping as well as woodworking.

I was thinking about that Bob… especially since we are going to be re-doing our little pond that we put in last month. Now that we are addicted, we want to make it big enough for the fish to stay in during the winter. So we need bigger and better.. MWHAHHAHAHAHA

I like the pond where it is situated but there isn’t a lot of room right there.. Designing it is going to be tricky.
I thought about sending you a pix and getting some ideas from you. (since you are now my gardening Guru). Love your style!!! :D

I’d love to help Deb. Do you have a plot plan of your property as well as the photos?

I have an overabundance of water lilly’s. I wonder if the plants I have would be hardy for you…probably would be a pain to send plants cross border though.

we haven’t decided which way to go.

flexible: sounds like we can be more creative.
rigid: well, the neighbour’s dog (size of a bear) likes to wade into our pond … so we’re worried about holes…
