getting ready to go north

We are in our last week here for a while…sad.  Never happy about the transition.  I never
do  transitions well….I am much more predictable that I ever wanted to 
admit.
We were introduced to a wonderful little Marina on a fabulous cove right near the
Ancient City.  It is a local’s place — almost Key West, or Caribbean like …  Just
a lovely little spot hidden from the traffic…
Roberta & Ted are coming and we look forward to seeing them, but it is our last week
here and there is so much that we want to do and have to do……
 
I guess May is a right
month to come North.  More and more, I would like to be here without having to
consider having to be someplace else….I will feel that way about Charlestown when I
get there, but I am afraid I will not feel that way about trucking into Providence…
 
We have done so much gardening…I feel I am in the dirt and the mud for hours.  But
the place is coming together…The work we did planting is going to give the house a grander
presence than it had with the previous owner….It was a nice house with a lawn….When we are
through I want it to be a smart house wonderfully landscaped….
 
I used a grand piano cover as the motif for the garden to the right of the entrance…We
have mulched, and planted many Florida native flowers and grasses and used large pots
to decorate with bright geraniums.  We planted winter hardy and heat tolerant plants
because we hear how often people lose their gardens to a vicious drought or to an unsuspected
freeze.  
It has been a lot of fun.  Today I laid out a stone patio so our hot-tub could have
a more permanent home.  I love the exercise of it all and the designing of these little
spots all over the house so that we can like it and enjoy it from many locations in
it and around it…..
Just wanted to check in and say we will most likely be back by next Sunday…Hope
all is well.
Love, As Ever, Al
