Our new place is still too full of boxes for photographing, so here are some of the lovely wee details I’ve noticed in the past couple of days:
twisting vines, that arrived intact,
and metal vines to match,
and an oldschool sort of approach to functional things also being decorative.
There’s lots of room for plants!
and i realized in this move that I have a LOT of plants.
(but there’s no such thing as too many plants, is there.)
And now there is an oh-so-convenient hose to water them with (yay!)
and a stoop to sun them on (and to sit with morning coffee)
which is also a nice place to watch the neighbourhood sparrows,
and feed them our homegrown sunflower seeds!
There is a huge, stately maple in the yard,
(maple vs. clothesline = MAPLE WIN)
and a very exuberant grapevine on the fence,
whose sour, bitter little grapes yielded this warm dove-brown dye.
(that’s the undyed merino on the right)
There’s rich black earth and room to grow things in,
a lumber yard over the fence,
and a great market a pleasant bike-ride away,
where it was hard to limit ourselves to just this fine selection. Yum.
I love it here.
Have i mentioned?
