Respecting that the year ended on an unbelievably sad note for you, what you and Mark accomplished over the course of 2021 deserves notice and applause. I'd forgotten how perfect your new water feature is. And of course the new dry pond is a magnificent creation. I'm sure your garden will bring you peace in the new year, whatever challenges it brings.


I'm curious on what you thought of the book "Uprooted". I'm interested in it but on a very limited budget. I value your option on books. I read "Say Nothing" and was blow away.

My condolences on your loss.

TRACY — I liked it, but more because I had read her earlier books and followed her earlier garden. Now they've moved and have a big property with lots of woodland and wetland they are trying to restore. They moved partly because where they lived was becoming too expensive; but it still appears they are well off. I also was interested to see what they would/could do for reasons of age since I am in my 70s.
I would see if you could find it at the library or go on Amazon and see if you can read a bit of it to get a sense of it. 
Did you read "Empire of Pain" about the Sacklers and opioids by the same author as "Say Nothing?" I got about halfway through it and gave up.



I gave up on "Empire of Pain" about halfway through too. I just couldn't keep reading through the court cases. I hate not to finish a book when I've gotten that far, but am glad to hear I'm not the only one!

The gravel "pond" looks like it's always been there. You two certainly kept busy!

The gravel pond looks so safe and welcoming. I hope you find respite there and within. Best to you in 2022!


I forgot how nicely the pond renovation turned out, it really looks great.
You've been very busy. All the best for 2022!
