Venice 85 , Port Townsend 64.That's good because I get to do the back 40. And cooler is better. I am down to the last section of this wheat that I am weed wacking and then mowing. It looks really nice. We will leave the wheat grass down and throw on rye and clover seeds. The clover will come up with red flowers next spring and early summer. This year, it looked very attractive with the lower red clover and the tall stalks of what I call wheat. This morning I went to the local garden shop for a few more deer free plants. I was told that there are so many deer this year, that they are even eating things they would normally avoid. The deer , as I may have mentioned, are every where. In multiples. It's turning into a political issue and economics. There aren't many options.As it is, this is a city of fences. When I was traveling through Morocco, I took pictures of doors, here I take pictures of fences. Many of them are practical and works of art. My fences are utilitarian wire. Not attractive,  but the deers don't do more damage than they already have. It's too bad, I don't get excited any more when I see one or many more just walking around town.I use to think that they were so sweet.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
