B and NO B”…to complete the interaction…

I did a post for the WP challenge “Repurpose” to show how James had taken a really rough building and turned it into our “Bed and No Breakfast”, our Guest House.

You can read that post here:

This is one of the comments I received:

I also love your house. I don’t want to sound envious, but it’s perfect for the setting and I love the way it fits into the land, like a nest.

So here is that brewed up response:

Then, THIS happened! (view looking up from the Guest House)

 

I really wanted to retain the Porch Swing, our favorite wildlife viewing spot.

This end of the house is still a work in process but you can see the low windows the Turkeys visit for their vanity checks. My Grandsons are helping me create a rock garden with stones and shells from the beaches of the San Juan Islands!

The inside of the addition is not finished yet but is almost done outside, (still have to complete the upper deck….oh, and shore up the mine-shaft terraced gardens out in front of the house.)

So Marilyn and JoAnne and Ed, and Karuna, Linda, and Lisa and husband and whomever else is interested…make your reservation soon!  (smiley face…winking face…hearts…geez, I really have to get some emojis!!)

Many Shadows for WPC 2/8/17

Shadow

 

I LOVE this topic. I take a lot of photos of shadows. I think they can be so beautiful and thought provoking.  Here are some of my favorites, all in one post!

I LOVE my Cobalt and it lives in sunny windows for exactly these shadows!!

 

I love shadows I can’t identify (or remember…no idea what these were!)

I love to see things popping out from the shadows.

And then of course, there is the whole dedicated activity of AVOIDING the shadows!
