The DREEN

~~Trickle trickle little stream ~~

~~You are ever so clean~~
~ ~~Why did they call you a “dreen?”~~
~
This Old House of some 120 years has names that the first owners used for some things. We have chosen to keep those names for the integrity of the original owners and their history. Dreen had to be an archaic word for drain…the water source for this “DREEN” comes from the hillside across the “HARD” road…! The HARD road was built @ 1920 and now goes in back of our home…the REAL road, back in the horse and buggy days went in front of the house… Bearing that in mind, we actually use the BACK of the house as the Front…although, much to the chagrin of our children, we refer to the Front of the house as the actually front…because it has porches…the back has a deck.
Just beyond our cat Castor you can see the Creek

Your pictures in the previous post are just beautiful! Can't wait for things to pop around here.

Lucky you -- another raised bed! Hope there will be some after pics too. Good deal getting the replacement cover for the cold frame. And not a moment too soon!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, you are SO lucky to have water running right by your house! Lovely photos of the ducks and kitty.
