    you're most welcome, and very kind.

    You'll make me blush. image

    we seem to get one pair of( very territorial ) Canada geese each year  but they don't hang around once the kids have grown.

    Did anyone see the film Fly Away Home...a real tear jerker, we watched it on you tube again, the other night.

    Your  geese just reminded me.

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor. 

  • Yes it was a brilliant film but a real weepy

    And when are you getting your boat Hosta? image

    Love your pic - it reminded me of my last house and garden  - for which I had great plans. Not to be though. You don't post enough pix of your lovely 'estate'   image

    Those ducklings are gorgeous. 

    Did you remove the fence just to enhance the view - or for another reason? I imagine it's great from the conservatory.

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    You can borrow my floating jetty if you like. You'll have to make your own paddle! image I don't need one.

    Your place is stunning!

    you guys are way too kind. Thank you.

    we bought a rowing boat, but it's not made it down to the lake in 2 years. maybe next year.

    Lyn and Dove have been here:it's hardly an estate, but it is kinda big.

    I'm on an acre and a half which is borderline too big for me. It's the outside forces like trees down and cow invasions and 1/2 ton rolls of hay through the fence and into the sheugh that make life interesting.image 

    I'm most concerned about the pond because I'm completely clueless. At the moment I'm just trying to keep it cleared and some fancy grasses look much like ordinary grasses to the untrained eye. It's only when they get fat that I think..."Oh look. An iris!"image
