hi there ~

It's been awhile ... both the house and garage are finished with the new siding and roof.  Sigh of relief!

Kota ~ she's a new addition to the family and a real sweetheart ...

... but she likes to get into the gnome garden and carry off things.  I had to retrieve Grumpy Troll who lives in his grotto with his pet polar bear and put them back ... tucked into the flower bed,

along with Poppa Gnome ... and a few of the other ones.

 ... she thinks everything is a toy.  

...the blueberries are ripening ~

... the flowers are bloomin' ~

... even the bear are visiting out by the TajMelHal ~

Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
