Last of the springtime blooms

Well we missed much of the spring here but I have managed to at least see a few springtime blooms.

There are no daffodils left but the tulips and lilac are still holding on. It is the last bit of colour until the summer blooms start to show their stuff. 



A tale of two toilets

i have always wanted two bathrooms here at the schoolhouse but this isn’t quite what I had in mind.


Our kind friend has provided us with a new toilet (well new to us) and installed it. As soon as the water is up and running we will be able to be a little less rustic than we have been the past few months. And for now this old beaut will remind us of what a cold winter it truly was.
