We open with our beautiful swans homing on pristine, semi-private, mystical Lake Anne again this year, enjoying the fruits of our lagoon. All photos below show growth to 2024 constrasing the 2017 rhody video and other videos and photos from former 'on markets.' Again, 'shakin' in our boots,' as you can imagine, if potentials promise to love and protect et al, and certainly not cut down any trees, save safety trimming, then we shall allow.

Ah, but! For the mystery and intrigue that await you here as well, see: The Stories of Tarajories, linked to the main page with other unbelievably true and amazing demonstrations also linked therein. You can do it, 2 ! You'll stand in awe at the experiences that await you here as do we.

Swan in Lagoon

Shown here, the 'island' inside the driveway oval also thickly populated with our precious rhodys befriended by several pines and dogwood found in our forest during our honeymoon, planted amongst established trees, 1976 prior to several years of rhody plantings... soon to be 50 years! Only one former owner, the original developer of the area who kept the primo prestigious Clear Lake property for himself, as did we.

The aft main manor enjoys an array of various volunteers and plantings. Our a/c unit was moved to the south side with the new install so a rather empty area still awaits our creativity or yours.
