  11. I wish I had green fingers! I try, but not very good at it, I blame the climate and short growing season for my (outside) failures, The magical photo is very much like here, our local river is called the Smokey River, I believe because of the same effect of the clouds filling the river valleys, amazing to drive through or as I walked down to work into it. Oops, sorry, I think I have drifted of topic! but I find it so fascinating.
  12. Another beautiful area to be blessed with Canny lass, so different from here, I see you have many different types of trees and bushes, and I see lots of trees with leaves on, when our leaves come out we loose the view but it does shelter us from the winds, even green grass is a sight to be seen, yes the higher mountains retain the snow but the lower ones it comes and goes. (next snowfall usually comes May long weekend because it's the first ball tournament, now cancelled due to the coved virus) We can't develop land outside of town (crown land) and are restricted to planned lots, but ours is on a corner and a pie shaped lot, and being on a plateau have an unrestricted view,
