It's a bathtub/fish pond/ raccoon feeding station.

Keeping with an Ozark stereotype that if we have a bathtub, it may not actually be in the house, we turned this tub into something we thought was more interesting (to avoid taking it to the dump). For a while, some really fancy and expensive fish liked it. Later the local raccoon liked the fish. So, now only the racoon bathes here. Even a welded wire frame didn't stop his nightly raids. So, at present, we are without fish. But we have a nice fat raccoon.

Garden 2009.

First trip back from the garden center in Kausik's new car.

The crab apple trees on the street.

And, our modified bathtub.

Molly's bed

Wall hanging was a gift to K from his parents. It's from Digha (SW Bengal, Bay of Bengal side).

Kausik and I made a bed for Molly's room. We both worked on the basic construction, then he stained and finished it. She won't be home until August, K's parents will use her room when they arrive in June. Then, she can move back in to her own room in September, when they go back home to India. Liesel, we do have a place for you... we didn't kick you out!
