Welcome to my neighbourhood

When you turn off Main Street (just before that butter coloured faremhouse from yesterday) you head down my lane toward my house. On the left are two unremarkable mailboxes, on the right are the 8 blueberry bushes Joe bought for his wife Nancy for Mother's Day a few years ago.

Go past my driveway and this is what you head toward. The "ladder" helps the kids get up into the big pine trees. Go around the bend and you get to Laura's house.

A few years ago we both did some reconstructing of our yards to resolve some drainage issues. Mine resulted in a gravel swail, she has what I guess is best described as an escarpment. They tried seeding it with vetch to minimize erosion but it never really took off. Nature had something better in store, I guess. Any thoughts on what this yellow wonder might be? It's sure pretty.

It looks like a wonderful place to live. I can imagine that the best season is autumn. I really enjoy looking at your pictures. We don't really have autumn here - just the "rainy season" and then summer.

No clue what that yellow thing is. I would guess yarrow, but I recently learned what yarrow looks like and that ain't it. I guess I thought anything so yellow should be called yarrow.

I am enjoying this little cybertour around your world; it is so very different from mine. I was telling my friend yesterday that the trees in Vermont hadn't peaked yet. She wondered how I knew. I told her I just know these things...
