CAN'T SEE THIS HOUSE?

That's the point!

This property owner knew exactly
what he was doing when
this "house on stilts" 
was nestled on this wooded hill.

Natural tree bark shingles and deck,
with woods left standing.
(No lawn!) 

And when the trees fill in,
it's invisible.

(Nicely done.  Bravo!)

IT'S TIME

Whether it's seeds
  or seedling plants,

cool weather veggies
or flowers,

get your garden beds ready
to plant!

THE PERFECTION
 OF SPRINGTIME 

All the waiting,
frozen cold snaps,
and anticipation
of sweet Spring flowers.

We're reminded now
   of the best part of Spring -- 

Absolute perfection.

(I humbly present the
above specimens
as proof.)

TURNING A TREE
INTO A DESK TOP

Michael Brown is a resourceful,
talented woodworker.

He's also woodshop/engineering
  teacher  and department chair
at Kirkwood High School.

He turned a gift of a felled pecan tree
into a vision of a new desk top for his office.

Sawing, planing and aging
this beautiful wood,
gluing, sanding and polishing
a single custom fit desk.

Showing off the beauty of
natural wood.

Well done, Mr. Brown.

CELEBRATING SPRING
 DOWN AT THE SPRING 

What better way
to celebrate the 1st day of Spring
than to visit a spring,

Richart Spring
flowing into the upper Meramec.

Unseasonably warm for March,
thunderstorms, followed by
sunny summer temperatures
in the 80s.

This should get things 
growing and greening up.
