From The Norbertine Sisters' Garden ~ Good Fences No. 15 - And Tree Trimming Update Pics




Rachael and I like to visit the sisters up on the mountain where the statue of Saint Francis keeps watch over the animals.


Joining Tex and friends for
Good Fences


Before and After of the Old Juniper Tree:





After I trimmed back the shorter branches and twigs, Glenn cut off the larger ones and the thicker limbs. I think we did a pretty good job and I hope the tree will enjoy this much lighter load and thrive for another couple of hundred years.



I wasn't able to visit anyone this past week because of computer glitches and my unwillingness to deal with them. They are still with me, but at least I figured out how to fix the major problem. So good for now, but it's a recurring one that will need more of my time later.

    The Juniper looks very nice now, should be safer, you think?

  11. Wow, that juniper looks like a teenager now. What a difference and hopefully there is another hundred in those branches. Good job by the both of you.

  12. I love that new banner - and repeating patterns! I'm also fond of how the old postboxes looked, and a postbox fence is priceless! Great image catch, Inger. I'm glad you get to check on the animals often, but having a saint on your side doesn't hurt either (perhaps he protects the animals who have met with ill-handling.)

  15. I really like the long lone of mailboxes in your header . . that's a happy view.
    Until now, I'd never heard of Norbertine Sisters - thanks for something new . .
    what a good job you've done with that tree . . i bet it's grateful.
    It must have been challenging . . i mean, it must have taken a good deal of strength to cut away that mass of limbs.
    I'm impressed. - I sure hope the mail carrier has plenty to fill those happy looking boxes.
    love & love,
    -g-

  17. Looks like a beautiful place to visit up on the hill with the St. Francis shrine. All your pictures are beautiful and they always make me wish I could live or travel more in the west. Such amazing landscapes!

  23. Hi Inger - just good to see you ... I've been away, so am somewhat behind. The Juniper looks amazing - such a good job;

    While the arbour and fence an absolute delight ... no wonder you enjoy going up to the Norbertine Sisters' Garden - love that photo and the trees: old and revived ...

    cheers Hilary
