from Susan Elhardt in Washington State. She says, "My husband,
Richard, and I bought this property in 2005. We have three, mostly vertical
acres in Olympia, Washington. The steep slopes make everything a challenge,
from weeding to mowing, but the views are interesting and it feels like we live
in a park. The rocks are Kapowsin Blue from a quarry near Mt. Rainier and
placed by our artistic rock man, Patrick Fanning."
