Somehow, I missed sharing these photos! This first one was a rainy Sunday afternoon, and obviously Simon and James were tired.
Mom was sending a birthday card to one of my brothers in the States, and several of the younger children wrote letters to their cousins to include with it. Mr. Sweetie took several pictures to add to his letter. This one was taken from the hill across the road, and shows our house and garage, and, to the right, the small guest house Mom is staying in.
A thistle on the hill across the road.
Foxgloves–a major weed in the pastures.
A view of our back yard from the roof of the tiny house.
Next, he climbed the garage roof to take some pictures. This is Esther tying up the tomatoes to the posts on the other side of the greenhouse. It sure looks different now–the tomatoes are taller than I am!
Another view of the garden from the garage roof.
Looking down from a tall tree at part of the back yard and a corner of the garage.
The corner of the back yard by the garage, with the boys’ collection of bicycles and their workshop.
A photographer has come several times to take pictures of our family. Here, one of the children got a picture of him!
Little Miss learned to make hollyhock dolls this year. She loved them!
After she took a picture of her doll, I suggested she take a picture of the incredible hollyhock plant! I’ve never seen one so tall. It no longer looks so nice; it’s about done, and falling over.
She also took a picture of a potato blossom.
Esther spent several days staining the woodwork around the deck of the tiny house. It now has a roof, too!
