the new neighborhood...

I think I am all Tea Partied out!  It took me several days to get through all the parties and I tried to reply to each comment but I'm not sure if I did or not.  If you commented and didn't get a message from me, I want to say Thank You for visiting and for commenting.  I was overwhelmed with all the lovely comments in such a good way.

I'm still settling in to my new place.  I need to hang pictures, set up altars and finish un-boxing the studio, but I'm taking my time and going through every item to put in it's proper place or decide if it needs to be donated.  I can't begin to tell you how many books I have donated.  In fact I have two boxes ready to take.  
Since the house isn't really photo ready, I thought I'd show you a little of my outdoor neighborhood.  

This is what is on the other side of my fence.  When I open my gate, I get to see this little pond.

These guys hang out in the pond a lot, as well as turtles and frogs. 

Oh my,  the frogs!  I've never seen so many frogs!  And those little suckers are fast.  I keep trying to get a good photo of them, but so far no go.  I'll keep working on it though.  

I had no idea the sound they make.  They start up at sunset and sounds very much like a bunch of little dogs dying.  It has taken a little getting used to.  I was sitting on the patio last night and saw at least 6 frogs climbing the walls and downspouts.  

This is my new sky.  It is so pretty.  I can see the moon and the sun come up.  No close trees to block the view but on the other hand, no close trees for shade either. 
And this guy...
 ...and his cousins are everywhere!  I've even had a few sneak in the house!
The super moon snuck up on me last Friday night while I was working on my MTP post.  I happened to glance out the window as I was going to get a glass of water and there she was.  

I think that is all for today.  Just wanted to share a little of my new world.  I went on a bit of an adventure today and I will share about that next time.

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and I'll see you soon.

It looks like a lovely place! I love seeing wildlife around!

Ha ha I remember we were staying with one of my parents' friends once, they had a pond outside their bedroom window and this frog kept moaning outside all night. He ran out in his pyjamas to try and catch it, he was really mad. We tried not to laugh too much.

Oh oh oh! To be that near to water, right out your back gate! I am a bit of a water element and we have a river that runs through the town but I live a mile from it. If it was in my back yard!!! Can't wait to see pics of the inside.

I am sure you are going to be happy in such a beautiful setting. Eager to see photos of the house itself.

Hmm, I thought I had commented on this post already..?

Well, I wanted to say how lovely your new home/garden seems. Congratulations!

And yes, having a pond nearby can be very noisy! We had a century old one recreated for the sake of the environment and jeeeeez, those frogs are LOUD.
