Lots of improvements at the Arsenal since the 2009 photographs.

Revisiting this after some time I have to say it is a chest thumping accomplishment Wade....
You deserve your title as the premiere archery collector of our time.
Just get back to posting and educating the rest of us. The sharing of your knowledge is certainly appreciated!!

Some of the many changes on the outside include over 350 roses as of Halloween, Oct 31, 2015 when these photographs were taken...

A new bed in the front...

Some additional roses from the southeast...
 -

Same shot from farther south...

Our only grandchild, a 3-year old, apprentice pie baker & youngest archery enthusiast in the family...

The above photographs are some of the reasons I haven't made many posts these past few years...

Very nice Wade but some of the roses look a bit droopy. I'll bet you could prop them up by pounding a few Grumleys' in for stakes!!
Enjoy the little ones that's when they're fun. We are blessed with four ,two of each and the girls always had a soft spot in my heart. They are now 16,18,20, and 22 but oh the memories.
My wifes last day of work is today so perhaps in the near future we can come "smell the roses".

Gary -

The photographs were taken the last day of October, so the roses were just hanging on to life by the narrowest of threads. We are usually very lucky to have any roses by the first day of Nov, so 2015 proved to be a nice long growing season. Never thought of using Grumleys to prop them up. I'll have to try that this year. Thanks for the idea.

I actually have several dozen roses growing in the Arsenal right now, and none of them are droppy. The week after taking these photographs, I took cuttings from many of our favorites and started them under lights. I had my first bloom from a cutting the first week of January and have had more blooms this month. So I already have a very early start this year.

Yes, you need to come "Smell the Roses".

The first weekend of June this year, the American Broadhead Collectors Club (ABCC) is holding their annual 4-day meeting & show about 30 miles from our place here in Nebraska.

We are planing to host a "Wine & Roses" tour as one of the entertainment events, and naturally, an additional tour of the Antique Archery Arsenal is also on the agenda for the evening.

Each year we host several events for local groups and gardening organizations in the community. Serious gardeners are almost as crazy as serious collectors of archery tackle...

Your advice is great... "Enjoy the little ones that's when they're fun." Since this one was born we have had her 4 days and 3 nights each week. She is our own part time child. We are almost lost when she is not here. Sometimes it's hard to convince her that she can't just shoot any bow on the rack that happens to catch her eye that day.

Trap -

Would guess that you figured out there have been several additions and changes at the Arsenal & want to see them. Trying to finish up inside here so can start to work in the garden as the season is near at hand. Will just post a few of the more obvious additions and do more later...

Added two 4-foot wide lighted display cases for small things, which also provided a much needed additional 8 foot wide wall behind these cases.

Because there were only a few chairs here we also added enough seating for a dozen visitors...

Spent most of this past week re-wiring the arsenal, getting the old pull chain lights all wired to switches. This was a big improvement for convenience. Note the two gang switch to the right of the bear...
