A charmed place

We signed a purchase agreement for this house and garden in Quebec having only seen the real estate photos (on the for-sale, by owner website).  We fell in love with the photos, so it's remarkable that the reality is even better.

We're pushing the limits of our fitness (which is actually quite good), by gradually editing the landscape (hmm, heavy weeding and pruning), improving drainage around the house (think moving bags of river stones), and carting around bags of soil amendments for the new screening plantings.

It's a magical and charmed place. 

The previous owner (an antique dealer) had created a special house (filled with his antiques) and garden (with his previous girlfriend).   We're fortunate enough to have acquired both.
