At the end of our first really spring like day...not to be confused with actual spring...I went for a drive out to Shangri La Ti Da (where we are building our retirement home) to see how it had survived most of the winter.
One of the fruit trees has been flattened by the deer. Really, laying on the ground flattened! One of the others looks a bit nibbled and the other one looks fine. The bees had a couple of guards at the door of the hive and when I looked in the back, there was action inside. Yea! The arborvitae look pretty good and the tarp was happily flapping on the foundation!
At the top of the driveway, the flamingos have landed and taken a stand...
And this is the view from the top of our property looking north east...can't wait to live here!
