Saying Goodbye…part 2- Adele and Craigies

We have been saying hello and goodbye to family as we travel the past 14 years...you would think it gets easier but it never does.

This past month we have enjoyed staying at Sicksta Adele and Craigys home nestled into the side yard between two hickory nut trees.

Nice and lush..

This was the home eleven years ago.

Sand for lawn.

Adele works at Big Bloomers Flower farm..

She brought in earth and used reclaimed rain water to get her garden started.

One year Sicksta Adele made this patio using a concrete mixture and forming it into the shapes of rocks or pavers.

There are no rocks here in the Sand hills of NC.P1120773
