In spite of rain!!!  There are always ways around things…


I think I forgot to mention that the work Woody is doing in the garden on the fences, gates and bench has been funded by a “Toolbox Grant” from the City of Salem, administered through the Historic Landmarks Advisory Commission.  The grant deadline for completion of the work is July 31st, so Woody is working against the clock…

Yesterday Woody and Christopher worked on rebuilding the bench seat…

and Don Roberts completed all the painting of the strips that will be used to rebuild the back of the bench…the “privacy lattice” so-called for the close arrangement of strips and the small square spaces between.


Woody mentioned that all the strips you see in the photo will be used in just the back of the bench.  Stay tuned for “the REVEAL”…  And thank you, City of Salem!
