This picture is looking at the pond and shows the area outside the picture window. I am planning to put a weeping cherry tree over there and a cement birdbath. Today Don finished the wall and did some other stone work.
This is the right side of the pond. I put the large gate at the top of the stairs. The clematis is in bloom. There is one for each side of the gate and hopefully it will fill in and cover the large gate.
The creeping juniper is at the top of the waterfall. It only gets 6 inches tall put spreads. That is really the only evergreen in the garden. The plumcherry is to the left and behind is the coneeaster bush.
The orange daylillies remained from the old landscape but the hydranga is new along with the Russian sages.

What a happy day! My grandson, Dan, graduated from Boiling Springs high School. He was really surprised when he was awarded a plaque from the Social Studies department for being an exceptional student.
Doesn’t he look happy? He will be attending Penn State main campus next year for mechanical engineering.
Here is Dan with the letters that he earned this year…academic excellence, soccer, and track.

On Thursday we will be off to Dan’s graduation and a visit with my sister for the weekend near Roanoke. It will be so nice to getaway. It’s been awhile since we were off on a trip. Tomorrow I will spend the day packing and gathering things for the trip. It will be so nice to be with family again. This is a picture from last year. I must remember to take my bathing suit…it will probably be hot down there. Unfortunately Diane will be selling this house soon to move to Winston-Salem.
