Didn't mean to seem like I was bragging about the house--it's not what it was, when Mama and Daddy lived in it--some of the wiring is gone, right much actually, and some of the plumbing, and no central heat and air anymore 'cause it wore out, and we can't afford to replace all that. And the old washing machine recently conked out for good and I'm having to use a laundrymat, which I don't mind really having got more used to it. We don't have t.v. or cablevision or internet presently. We have t.v.s, but they're not hooked up. Lacking  these things actually keeps the bills down some. So that's the silver lining (laughs). I do plan to upgrade a bit in the near future.

Phone seems to be smarter than I am. I'll have to figure out how to compress files. Took some photos but they exceed data limit.

Apparently there's an app for compressing files hopefully these ones load up. They are just pictures of some of the garden. Spring was a little cool this year so the garden is just getting started. The weeds are getting out of hand but I'll have time in the next week or so. I think Iris and lilies bloom next. There's vines in the picture behind the willow tree ivy, trumpet, wysteria, honeysuckle, and silver lace. I took out an old octagon shaped building that built like a grain elevator with a large skylight window on the top. Unfortunately one of the skylight windows broke out and it rotted part of it making it dangerous. The farmer said he enjoyed laying on his back looking at the stars on the top of two floors. It was all built from material they got for free. I used all the boards for various projects over time. The vine trellis doubles as a bird house. The dogs are often busy chasing off critters that would like to move in. That is just part of what I consider the garden. There's a filled in pool that makes a great vegetable garden and I have started various trees. It is an oasis surrounded by dry land farms. If you like these photos I could take some more. When I get caught up I could get some of our Western sunsets. I used to live just North of Bellingham by Demming on the Nooksack reservation with a friend's family. I'm not Native but I was a guest and treated well. My friend's grandfather was Filipino and his grandmother full Native. The Grandfather was a gourmet chef and taught all of the Aunts how to cook also. Adobo was probably one of my favorites but everything was always delicious. We used to jump into the waterfall at Watcom falls by the college. Had some good times up by Bellingham and some out of hand adventures. A few stories here and there about Sasquatch running around the woods. I miss the smell after a good rain. There's a few trails on the West side I would like to hike this summer. We did Eagle Creek and a few others by the Dalles last year. I never seem to get tired of the Pacific Northwest. Snow melting in the Blue Mountains perfect time for Morels and other mushrooms.

These pictures are probably not too exiting but I started all of the trees from little starts I got from plants of the wild. There's various junipers, pines and spruce. Have birch, crab apple, Japanese maple, sycamore, and a few other trees. I just take care of the property and keep everything watered. That property will probably get sold next year but I get to enjoy the plants for another year. I'll probably start another garden wherever I go next. Anyhow just one of my hobbies I also like to build things and will probably teach myself how to weld better. I like to work on vehicles also but that can get expensive. There's also a few herb gardens here and there mixed in. There's always some kind of berries, grapes, and vegetables in the summer. I can't figure out how stores have flavorless tomatoes, nothing like home grown. Anyhow hope you like the photos.

Your garden is so nice Ben.  Yours always is Martine. I had one for one summer.  It was nice while it lasted.  I don't like to garden.  

Chokotoffs- had to look them up.  Wow!  Mmmmm. 

I was going to get my medical marijuana card on Monday.  It costs $150. I need it to get cbd and thc for a relative who is suffering from an incurable disease.  Relative lives in Utah, so Ben you know how that goes.  (I live in Montana.)  
Surprisingly I found another relative that talked me out of getting the card and she educated me on how cbd and thc is isolated and made into tinctures.  That's all I care to say right now but Goddam it should be legal!!  There is no reason for good people to suffer from their ailments because of other people not understanding how it works!
Yes - relative has some now and I will get more to Utah.
