There are many, including our own children, who think DH and I live at the ends of the earth. We have lots of reasons why we chose to live up here on the Canadian border after spending 21 years in New Hampshire on Lake Horace. One of these reasons is the unique beauty of our property. We live on the Deer River on a 650 foot section of white water 100 feet from the house. Wildlife abounds. The bird watching is phenomenal and we have been visited by critters that we have never seen before. We have been here three years.
Two years ago we built a family room and a sewing room addition. The window in my sewing room where I sit and sew is blessed with a view into the shade garden. The crowning focal point of this garden is the very large boulder that you see. I tried to take the picture as you see it from my window. I am in a continual process of refining this garden and get so much satisfaction out of its textures and shades. There is a natural pool that the birds visit every evening as well as the beautiful stone slab bird bath that DD gave us before we moved. I will never forget the day DH and I moved that puppy off the truck. I thought for sure a foot or leg would get crushed. Then we paid one of the locals with his heavy equipment to put it on top of this rock after we moved here. It was well worth it.
I thought I would share this slice of my sewing world as it pops out its spring growth. We are a little behind the rest of you around the country, being in zone 4. I have been sewing and looked up and seen a herd of wild turkeys, or my chickens that broke loose, or little songbirds, or deer, or voles, or other critters. It is a delight to sit in my sewing room. I hope you have enjoyed this visit into my room with a view....Bunny
