On February 17, 2019 - Quick overnight at our sleeping beauty before heading out to Besse Super Besse for some skiing (it’s going to be warm...). But a quick update... We have woken up the fountain (when I say “we” it’s more of the royal ”we” because we couldn’t have done any of this without the right help from talented people). She was super sleepy and covered in bamboo. Starlings were roosting and it was a horrible mess. But now look! We found her bones. The remaining balustrade has been uncovered. There’s a very poorly Weeping Willow sweeping across one corner and a host of crazy in the middle. As expected, the fountain is missing ... and there’s a tree growing through it’s base (life will find a way). This is really exciting because it gives us the first look at what will become a natural pool. Progress!!
Till next week!
