Back to Bok Tower

Today we returned to Bok Tower Gardens (about an hour south) and were lucky with the weather being dry and warmer than predicted, allowing us to enjoy beautiful walks – and take lots of photos of course!

Of course there’s also a (bell) tower, as well as a building – we can’t enter either, but we can admire them from a distance …

That final landscape view is from the house – pretty nice!

Fenced in – and out

This summer Margaret has been doing lots of garden work and one project was to create a bigger planting space in the back. To do this, she also decided to get the back garden fully fenced in (till now, just the rear fence existed as the perimeter of the development).

Getting HOA and city approval all took a while, but recently the fence got installed – and we even had a gate put in to the rear fence!

When we moved to Stanton Estates there was a rear gate for the community to easily leave from the “bottom” (opposite to the main driving entrance) but difficult neighbors forced it to be removed, so now at least Margaret and I can again say “hi” to the people that live behind us!
