They arrived late Friday night, for a late dinner, and after market on Saturday someone suggested, "well, why don't we build the bridge between the two decks?" So we started by thinking a bit , and a bit more , and finally installing some brackets to hold up one side, and pretty soon there was a frame in place and not long after that the joists were in and the railing tacked in place and decking was in progress . And soon , voila! A bridge. Along the way we noticed there were grapes on the vine.
And then there was
Meme and Brad did the veggie lasagna while Anne did the sweet corn and Russ supervised. Meme put the parsley on the lasagna and Brad's tomato and bocconcini and basil plate appeared. Meme served the lasagna forth. It was all wonderful.
Of course there was a
walk to the headpond.
So we started down the road admiring the potatoes and the scarecrow (we didn't take a picture of the dead crow on a stake). The woods were lovely , and of course so was the headpond . Brad took some shots of us over by the canoe and we took some of him back the other way . There were wonderful fungi and the stream was dry but still green . There were more trees with their roots intertwined , and a toad on the road on the way back up toward the house , exhibiting its new deck bridge.
And a bit of harvesting.
Before they left, of course, there were vegetables to be gathered and one of the Meme and Brad wedding maples to be visited and encouraged.
