On March 1, we started the move into our new home. I'm not going to post the whole story yet of all the details of the move, but I thought this blog would be the easiest way to share our photos of the new house and our wonderful garden. (Now I just need to learn how to turn my thumb from black to green!)
Here is our street - sitting just below the foothills of the Sierra Madre range.
One of the reasons we chose this house is that it sits next to a little path that winds through our neighborhood, so we are not jammed right up against our neighbors. At the top of the path is a little green "pocket park," a very convenient place to take Maggie for a quick walk.
Next come photos of our garden shortly after we moved in. Somehow I missed getting photos of the dozens of yellow daffodils, one of my favorite flowers, that were in full bloom when we first arrived. They faded quickly, but what a wonderful welcome they gave us!
It took a long time, but we are finally all moved in. Once we got all our pictures hung, it really felt like home. Here is the living room:
And the dining room and kitchen. (The living room, dining room, and kitchen are all one big room.)
The master bedroom and bathroom. I love the big "soaking tub" in the master bath!
Down the entry hall are Rob's office, a half-bath guest bathroom, and the guest room, with its own full guest bathroom. The guest room doubles as my office.

Finally, here is one more look at our garden as it looked this morning, the middle of April.
