knee deep in weeds

notes on a simple life

a new home

Brandon and Courtney bought a new home! 

What I really mean is they bought a little piece of paradise. Almost five acres of trails and amazing beauty. A fenced in garden space and room for some new chicks. Trails for morning and evening walks and lots of room for the pugs and their cousins to play. 

Basil and I roamed ever trail. He waded in the streams and ate pond grass, which is his favorite, and I took photos. 

There are blueberries and raspberries and rhubarb. Pear and apple and cherry trees. And flowers. 

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.

They will be busy unpacking and getting settled and building that chicken coop, eager to make it their own. So busy in fact, I wonder if he ever got that rhubarb crisp made!
