Guys or anyone standng up next to the bathroom windows can get quite a surprise when they are first awake and glance outside--Surprise! Quite a crowd gathered right outside the bathroom!

Our mooses came by to say hello and have a bite. It's good to see them! This is a daughter who is now the mom. I think possibly the mother who brought her calves here every year for 6 years may have died, or maybe just moved territory, but that seems unlikely. This is not that same mom, but I'm suspecting it's a girl calf who was raised in this area, because she knows the exact route around our property that they've always made to the bushes, fruit trees, and other good snack locations. It looks like this mama had twin girl calfs this year, too!

On my website, so far I've only had interior photos and video of my new cottages, because they were finished in January, and the outsides were not much to look at without any flowers. Here are new pictures showing the cute little windowboxes and perennials that have been placed around them. The lawn was hard-won, after a month of watering the dirt 10 hours a day. That nearly killed us, to fit that in as well as other chores that had to be done, and it was expensive, too. Nice grass doesn't come easily in Alaska. Now things are starting to really come together and look pretty nice with these brand new little cottages!

Now that there are lush window boxes full of summer flowers, it's hard to think back to their beginnings. In January, I set up a half dozen tables in the living room windows and start all the flowers from seed. Little Girl likes that she can pass beneath the tables to still see out the windows to keep an eye on her mooses.
