This blog started as a photo journal of the construction progress of our" little cabin in the woods"
Contractor: Mike Kennedy, Hazel Green, Al. Construction began 12/7/2009
move in date: March 14, 2010
For many years Bob had wanted a "little cabin in the woods"..the construction of his cabin was completed just one month before he died. I deeply regret that he never got to enjoy living here.
Gardeners are - let's face it - control freaks. Who else would willingly spend his leisure hours wresting weeds out of the ground, blithely making life or death decisions about living beings, moving earth from here to there, changing the course of waterways? The more one thinks about it, the odder it seems; this compulsion to
remake a little corner of the planet according to some plan or vision.

It began with a bench and some caladiums...4/27/10
At my "house warming party" I received wind chimes, a sun-catcher spinner for the yard, a garden flag, a bird house, 3 crape myrtle trees, a ginko tree, an azalea, a knock-out rose bush, and with gift certificates I purchases 5 spirea shrubs and another knock-out rose..
I've added a bird bath, ferns, bird feeders, wind chimes, rocks and a glider..
I had the beautiful little garden angel outside but the geese knocked her over and broke off one wing and both her hands...hot-glued them back on but afraid to put her back outside.
I bought the leaded glass window at the flea market in Nashville....
