|Where there is MeMa, there are fresh flowers nearby. Zinnias from her picking garden.|
|Although they had to be manhandled into their travel cage the boys, Peter and Mickey found the freshness of the forest quite relaxing and filled the air with song.|
|Although the gardens and greenhouse were left in capable hands I brought this tiny rose cutting and some species hydrangea cuttings that I was just not willing to leave behind.|
Once the van was unloaded the rest of the day was ours. And I can't think of a better spot to pamper ourselves then sitting here among the trees. Our cell phones don't work at the cabin but we have satellite TV and MeMa brought several movies.
|Just up the hill from our cabin sits a very popular children's play structure.|
|For many years my parents and their neighbors the Kaastad's faithfully ran the bingo hall at the lake every other weekend. They raised quite a sum of money that was completely donated to improvements to the area.|
The rest of the gravel went to top dressing pathways.
|Front stairs leading to the roadway|
|The lower stairs leading under the wrap-around deck|
|Just above the propane tank is the moss covered trunk of the vine maple|
|In the center and on the right is a metal post giving support to the newly transplanted huckleberry.|
Since they left us with no trees, only large ugly stumps I cut this pathway through the woods to the fire pit area and will build more stairs giving us better access to that area.
|While I toiled on pathways and such MeMa stacked firewood|
|After dinner cocktail hour|
|Our Sophie is afraid of the dark and was on guard duty when darkness fell|
|While the "Little Nazi" worried about the night MeMa and Popeye sang rowdy songs around the campfire.|
