hello to all! the gardens are coming along, there are a few different projects going on at the same time, so please bare with us. We have started a waddle project, it will end up as a dome basket, it will have a sitting area where it will be shaded by plants and the basket, and at night it will have little white lights all over the inside. The the guys have been digging out our dry moat or Foss, clearing out the dirt and replacing it with gravel and paving stones. Put another bench in there,along with all our different begonias. every year we try to add more begonias and geraniums, we would love to have all of them. The knights also has been working on rain barrels to go in there, it will be awesome when they get done. So please bare with us when you come out to visit us.Sir Wes Durin has been out planting and sweating placing new plant materials, he has designed a rain garden for us on the upper level,next to Addy's corner. the reason for it is to filter the water that runs off the hill behind us,since the homes have been built 10-15yrs ago there is alot of water run off. so Wes has helped us to become educated on rain gardens and we put one in! So come out and check it out, it is cool,I love learning different stuff, keeps you young. And speaking of young,Iwas out at the castle Sunday and I had the wonderful Red Hats Lady's Society from Owensville, out in the gardens talking and sharing, well before they left, Donna and the girls made me an honorary Red Hat Lady, for I turned 50 in Jan. It was a beautiful red cowboy hat with purple trim and a huge red feather, I am proud to be 50!!!!!!! well enough of that, this is a picture of my late Princess, she was at the castle for seventeen years, letting thousands of people to pick her up and love on her. she was our Princess of our castle, She had an awesome brother named Tiberius, after James T. Kirk. They are together in their castle in the sky. I miss them both I helped raise them, we have seen coyotes down by the river so please careful after dark if you live in the loveland area, no one is talking about it so i thought I would sound off! well better go for now.
