There’s been a lot of activity around my house and garden since I last posted in early January about our visit to the Rose Parade. You got a peak at the float barn but I never got back to post about the actual parade experience!
We’ve been mulling over downsizing both our house and the amount of ground I actively garden for the last few years. After serendipitously seeing a home which appealed to us while visiting a cousin across town, we hit the ground running. It took us a jammed packed two weeks to get our home on the market and only three days more for it to sell. The 30 day escrows on both our sale and our new garden (well, home also) close at week’s end. It will take a few days to drag everything we own 15 miles across town and another couple of months to redo flooring, paint it all and get the boxes from the garage inside so the blog will pretty quiet for awhile. Though the new garden is not a postage stamp, is very small compared to our current in-town 1/2 acre. It lives much larger due to some great borrowed views including the Sierra Mountains on a clear day.
Keep watch for some “before” pictures! I look forward to sharing this wonderful opportunity to develop my new garden with all of you by my side!
