And Then There Are The Losses

Sadly, we’ve had a few losses here on The Hill.

We buried one of the hens this past weekend. I will miss her rich chocolate brown eggs.

My beautiful New Dawn rose contracted a virus and had to be dug out and tossed away.

She will live on in photos though…

SOMEWHERE I have pictures of Schmenky and I standing under her but I can’t find them anywhere!

Another loss is the twig arbor which has held the wonderful Autumn Clematis up for many years…

The wood had gotten brittle and was cracking under the weight of the vines.

All gone

The vine itself had to be pruned back severely and this is what is left.

I’m sure she’ll come back stronger than ever though!

    Isn’t it sad when beautiful things die or even start their fading away?

    I’m sure you will replace them with something beautimous. I have no doubt your creative brain is already cookin’.

    Which chicken passed away?
