Randy, it will come!  My persimmon buds are swelling.  Yours will soon, too.

From the yard, some floral sunshine on a rainy NW day.

Hurray! It was warm enough to melt snow and for me to get outside. I pruned my raspberry canes and cut down my ornamental grasses. Still too wet to get into the garden. Patience is required.

Don, the long brown building, is the planting shed, tools room, tractors, and mowers storage area. That is where I hang out with my pals. There are no residences on the park, but when wealthy mine owners from the Coeur d'Alene, Idaho mines and lumbering families from these forests, they built homes all around the park. Cutter designed the mansions. My house is a smaller house built by trades people before 1900. 
I am trying to get a Google Earth map over here and not succeeding. I'll keep working on it.

There are volcanic outcroppings all around the park, and the park itself is in a kettle with many springs. There used to be a spring under the north side of my home' foundation that has dried up. There continues to be water under my south house foundation because it sits on an ancient pond. We know the peat is at least 40 feet deep under my garden that lies to the south of my house. 

When I  started the remodel, we dug and then drilled to find solid footing for the south foundation and had to either go 40 feet for bedrock or build pans under foundation posts. I chose pans because they were cheaper than drilling. 

Now my big old lady dances spring and autumn and sings me to sleep. There are cracks all over the inside drywalls and very few on the outside stucco.

Beautiful peach blossoms Daniel.

Beautiful garden Joan.

Joan, the flowers are Bonanza peach.  Genetic dwarf.  The dwarfing effect is due to highly shortened internodes, which results in both small size and lavish bunches of flowers on the stems.

Beautiful!  But is the "planting shed at the top of the hill" not in the picture?  That's the residence at the top of the hill, right?  How many acres do you have, Joan, and how near to you is your nearest neighbor?

Joan, I wish I had a view like that. But, I appreciate what I do have. I try not to think about the grass being greener....

I am really quite fortunate to live in such a beautiful city and so rich in ancient history.

Beautiful place, Joan!

Standing on an outcrop of basalt, looking over the perennial garden at the planting shed at the top of the hill.
