We spent the month of September in Iceland,
England and France.
While we were away,
landscapers were hard at work finishing the terracing at the back
of the house that had begun
one year ago
and been interrupted by the
early onset of winter.
Pauline worked hard to put plants in the completed upper part before
work on the lower part was done.
Planting the lower part will have to wait for Spring.
We also had more top soil spread on the
slope north of the house,
hoping we can encourage native grasses.
The work started
two years ago
and did help,
but we figure it will take several years to get the slope
