Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Video

After the Rain

Today I am going to walk you through our yard and garden. You can describe the property as still being in the semi-wild state not typically found on the manicured lawns of city dwellers. After a brief look at our backyard, we enter the garden, which I have downsized by using only raised garden beds, a more age-appropriate gardening method for one approaching the octogenarian stage in life. Then we follow the rapid climb of our youngest son’s hops plants. It reached the present height in less three weeks holding the absolute growth record of all our plants. After looking at the blooming blackberry bushes, we are making a tour around my wife’s art studio with an apple, plum and pear orchard and fire pit area surrounding it. I also would like you to see the rose that finally made its appearance, coming in last after the magnolia, azalea and lilac flowers. Enjoy.

      1. It’s impossible for us to fence all our property in. We could, of course, have a small fenced-in vegetable garden. But then, we’re not that keen gardeners.

  1. Thank you for the tour du yard! Your vegetables are coming fine, especially the lettuce. What do you do about snails? And the hops, wow, quite the climber, soon you can produce your own beer!
    You have such a cosy place with many places to sit. I like it.

  2. The lettuces are as pretty as the roses. I’ll confess my favorite tiny detail was the ladybug rock — I couldn’t quite tell if the ladybug was painted on the larger rock, or if it was its own rock, placed atop the larger one. It’s cute as can be.
