Our solar greenhouse-guest room-tool shed is coming along. The colours are especially pleasing to me.
A bright, blue sky day, frost on the ground … caught the builder taking a break.
Ice sculpture BC style. No, we don’t have broken pipes. We just need to leave the water running so we don’t end up with frozen pipes.
And then came the snow. Not exactly #snowpocolypse but very pretty.
The view from my desk makes it hard to keep working. I want to go out and play in the snow.
During a recent visit with our grandchildren, Bruce enlisted their help with the foundation for our new solar greenhouse.
Bruce is happy to make use of Brit’s levelling skills.
Oh, oh – stuck in the mud.
Oh, no – fell in the mud.
Time to get Emma’s help with some drilling.
Who’s the king of the mud hill?
Emma’s pretty excited about helping with the concrete.
I know Bruce will be missing his talkative and lively helpers this week but he continues to make progress on his own.
Who loves a garden [or a grandkid] loves a greenhouse too. (William Cowper)
