Popster & I have been fighting, arguing, having a discussion about a couple trees in the back yard since last year.  He feels they overhang the house too much & thinks they are going to fall on it during a storm.  My thinking is they have been like that for the 17 years we have lived here leave them alone!!!

These are the two in question.  I finally said okay have someone come in & look at them but added the following condition
  1. No heavy equipment is allowed any place in the yard
  2. Not one part of my perennial can be disturbed ( the trees are growing in it) 

I figured there would be no way he would find someone who would agree to that & give him a reasonable quote



  1. Oh dear, you lost that one but you did win the one about a beautiful new kitchen.
    Trees really aren't pretty when they are in your house. I know this went through hurricane Andrew.

  2. What was the verdict? I have three old, very tall cedar trees in a cluster in my backyard. They are the only trees. Their roots are starting to protrude above ground. I am afraid they will someday uproot and fall over. I am on a hill, and the trees are on the downhill side, which means if they fall, they'll take out my neighbor's fence for sure, and maybe part of their house. UGH.

  3. The trees are coming down....sniff, sniff!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
