Spring has Sprung!

Finally… beautiful weather!  Some asked for updated pictures from around Pecan Grove.  This is a great time for pictures, so here goes!  First the front and back of the senior residence.  Drainage swales were added last fall and rye grass was planted to stabliize the soil.  This grass is growing great now, but will die when the summer heat comes.  Hopefully good grass will replace it.

The garage in front of the residence and the spring house behind the residence (which contains the irrigation system for the pecans) are now complete.

The following show the fountain in the lake and the deck beside the lake with the long bridge which is just in front of the beaver dam (shown in previous posts)

The pecan trees are later than most other trees in bearing leaves, so they still look dormant.  Here’s a picture of the pecan orchard and the horses in front of the old farm house that Terry and Kim Hoffman live in.

Redbud, tulip bush, wisteria…

Cormorant Engineering is busy.  Here’s the barn with Cormorant hydraulic power units around it, and a new workbench in the barn for working on pumps.

Ed and Leah Bolt are spending the month of March at Pecan Grove again.  Dave, Mary, Heather and Anna, who live on the Newry PA convention grounds, came for a visit as well. The grandparent Bolt’s and Newman’s were friends before the Truth came in Maryland in 1933.  Here are the Bolt’s and Jack and Leona.

There’s been some carving and some painting going on…

One evening Dale and Patty Maki showed us their pictures from Peru. Another evening we showed our pictures from Haiti (no picture here).  The Bolt’s and Newman’s were together at our place.

Lot’s of other visitors through the month… many more than we have pictures of.
