This hinge was on an old home-made screen door. The door belonged to an elderly widowed gardening client of mine and was made by her Swedish husband. It has been hanging on our garden fence for probably more than 15 years now.
After 35 years of gardening the vegetable garden was feeling a little tired. Our middle daughter Maria thought it would be a great idea to make rock bordered raised beds so this past week she helped us redo the garden. I gathered rocks from my forest path building with the tractor while my wife and daughter worked on the beds. We dug out some of the old soil and replenished it with compost/manure garden soil. We finished most of the planting yesterday and are now waiting to see what comes of it all.
This window box had become the perfect deer salad bar. Just the right height for a deer to pick and choose it’s favourite colour. After many years we have learned that we can fight nature or else find a way to learn to get along with it. This means our yard has a bit of a prison yard motif with wire fences and protection over anything we really cherish.
Our snow day turned out to be a two day affair. A bit of a novelty for us so I’ll do one more posting of snow.
