Hi there... I have been missing you all once again, but will try this week to catch up with many of you. I had my last physiotherapy appointment last week as well as got a triple gel injection into my worst knee. It should take a few more weeks to know if the whole of the process has done a good thing for me, but I am feeling confident. I hope that each of you are doing well and I can't wait to scroll down and see what everyone has been up to.
As I said in my previous post, goodness on November 11, where has the time escaped me...I would share our conifer trees that live on this land that we call home. I have planted assorted Holly, Spruce, Hemlock trees on this land the past 35 years and they are doing well. In fact I have a Holly tree this season that has fruit berries for the first time. Only one out of some dozen Hemlocks remains...huge sigh. Sometimes we have drought as we have this past season and it is just too difficult to drag connected hoses to some of the trees and they cannot thrive.

The Oak tree below is the largest tree on our land and I had a difficult time even getting the fullness of the height of it~
When we first moved here I planted Ivy around some of the trees and some of it has well, sort of taken over and this Oak tree is covered in it~

Love my Norway Spruce...we have three~
Megan is my next door neighbor and she competed in her first horse show a couple of weeks ago. She rode in a few classes and placed in each of them.
I also watched a couple of the younger children who I just thought were too precious not to share~
Out and about the county, all taken from inside the car, as could not walk too far YET~
