Hi Dez, How is the solarium project going? I looked at the solarium thread as well as the last 4 pages of your thread. Thanks.

I have also seen this red yarrow that you have a picture of a couple of pages ago. A quick search showed yellow, white, red, pink, and purple varieties. Im guessing that these other colors were selected as a part of breeding programs for use in ornamental flower gardens.

It's looking good Dez. I am doing well, thank you. I have done a good amount of barefoot hiking recently. It always puts me in a good mood. That connection to the trail seems special. The month of walking on your pointy rocks has really toughened  my feet. 😄

I am missing being out there already even though I'm having fun and getting some stuff done here in Michigan. Perhaps if I finish a few projects, I'll find my way back out

.... July certainly was a month of celebration.. many outings, many spendings.. time to tighten up a bit for the winter.. but there’s always something to celebrate so let’s get creative..!

.... Justin, thanks for the info on the yarrows by the way.. so glad your feet are now extra tough from being on our turf! Hope to see you soon.. and feel free to send us pics of your projects :)

.... within a year, I’ve learned.. how to lift and work with roundwood construction.. junkpole fencing, timber framing, with machines and hand tools.. how to live without owning a car (free my soul!).. how to live in community.. I can list more, and all three of these are still a work in progress.. 3 days to a year.. and then one more..
