New in the Yard

Something new has arrived in the yard. The UNDER CONTRACT sign. 27 days and counting until the closing on this house. The inspection on Thursday went well. We are hopeful and anxious.

This weekend I am going through our clothes and getting a lot of stuff ready for donation. There is a different standard for things you would keep in closets for the future if you are staying in one place versus moving to someplace new.

Another new thing in the yard: 4 baby birds have outgrown their nest in the just blooming rhododendrons.

Also here is a better picture of the clematis and pergola I referred to in the last post. My estimate of 15 feet was too high. It's probably closer to 11 or 12 feet. But still impressive.

Gorgeous clematis! And lucky you to have robins so close... I have wished so hard for a nest that we can watch. Have you been watching them trying to fly?
