New home in Charlotte, NC

Ken's house in Anchorage is sold and the new home in Charlotte is paid for. Furniture will be arriving next week Now the real work begins.

The very hot weather has impacted the lawn badly. The landscaping will take a long time to bring it back to where it was in the Spring.

There are lots of interesting features in the backyard. The previous owners had stacked lots of rocks and bricks to use for building planters and walls. At the moment I don't know how I will use them.
The back porch of the house. Lots of lattice work to add vines and flowers. It's very quiet in the yard. All you hear are birds and crickets.

The pool table will fit just fine. Need to get a rug to put under the feet so it won't damage the floor.

It all looks fanastic. Marvellous house and garden! Talk to Dave about the kinds of plants to put in, to survive the heat and dry spells. Also, "ground cover" might be better than grass -- there's fantastic little creepers that look like grass from a distance, and don't seem to care about the sun. If they survive the summers down here (South Australia), they'd thrive where you are.

One of these days, Dave and I will be up there, and visit, and I can't wait to see it all.

Take care of yourself -- and enjoy the process of moving and settling ... it's an adventure!

Talk to you soon,
