And so we move on...






You can't say we Midwesterners aren't a hardy bunch. Storm after storm we weather the trials that Mother Nature hands us, moving on to the next day knowing that the dawn will be beautiful in it's own way. Even the most severe storms have a beauty unique in nature, in all walks of life, you just have to have faith in the universe that life will move forward and you will adjust, if you are lucky to still have life. Barb's son Drew has added a bit of humor to the day by attaching Santa to the top of the gargoyle tree, at least the trumpet vine will have full sun now to flourish.

Everyone at Sister's is still reeling from the destruction to the trees, it looks like hurricane territory with huge piles of branches everywhere, but amazing little in the way of inventory was destroyed...but I have a question Barb about my mirror that was broken...is that 7 years bad luck yours or mine...LOL

Come on in, the doors are open and the paths are cleared...you can't stop these crazy gals from doing the job they love.

Oh my goodness Sharon, I just can't believe the damage there!! I love that old tree :( And the painting on the side of the little barn is amazing!! I hope that can be salvaged. I say neither one of you claim those seven years!! xxoo, Dawn

It's crazy to think we parked our RV under that very tree when we spent the night at Sisters two weeks ago. Spencer kept trying to run into the hollow part of the trunk. The landscape at Sisters is so beautiful, it's ashamed the wind damaged so many trees and the shop. I know Barb will have everything put back together soon!
