The carpentry magicians continue their magic…..

Every day we are amazed how the new porch seems to be growing before our eyes.  It all looks so effortless.  Of course we know, that the carpentry team is working harder than ever to put everything back together.    What was a series of cement posts a week ago is starting to look like a porch.

Yesterday the landscapers visited, removed the old, leggy and sickly rhododendrons and planted new ones.   It will take several years for the new shrubs to take on the appearance of mature growth, but for the first time in years it is possible to look out of the porch and actually SEE the front garden!

We have also received Historical Commission approval to place our new fountain in the front yard!  We’ll write more on that later!
