A couple of days ago Woo mentioned that it might be nice to have a site plan of The Havens. This has occurred to me before, but I never acted upon the idea.
Today, I remedy the situation. I have two plans for your edification. The first one is an overall view of The Havens. We have two acres here. It looks sort of like this from the air:
The features are pretty close to where they actually are, in this map. If you want to see it from Google Earth point of view, then you can type in the latitude and longitude and the pointer will be right in the middle of the place. Or you can look for 18 Glenridge St., Lebanon, MO and get to the same place. Google Earth imagery is from 2009, and oddly enough you can barely see the vineyard. I guess the vines look a lot like lawn from above. The image was taken in the late morning, by the way. I can tell from the tree shadows.
Below is a more detailed plan of the Stroll Garden, which is on the west side of the property.
I need to update this plan a bit, the spot labelled “ornamental grass” is what I now call the Petite Prairie. Where it says tree/spirea is actually where the blueberries are planted. The part marked with green was going to be grass paths but we have converted that to cedar bark mulch underlain with weed barrier.
I hope this will help you all be oriented to where I am talking about when I discuss various parts of the yard.
I shall leave you with an image of the bouquet that graces my dining table right now.
