We live in a nice neighborhood full of older folk at the edge of town. Our backyard is not fancy. But it's BIG.
And surrounded completely by huge, beautiful trees of all types:
They are everywhere you look, and I just love trees.
I am jealous of our neighbor's flowering apple tree too.
I love looking up and seeing this..
And the yard has a few really cool features. One of them is the custom-built treehouse that some amazing friends put together for Colin when he was alive. It was one of his dreams to have it.
I think we need to add a "Henry" to that sign..
Rich decided Henry was ready for a sandbox. So he took out my herb garden and put one in there. I was a little miffed until I saw how cute he made it. My herbs will have to find another home.
He even put in a little deck area. I'm thinking I can get a decent tan on his little deck while he throws sand on me.
Of course Henry's favorite part is the door. In. Out. In. Out. So much for my tan.
And we can't forget about Todd the rabbit.
Another neat feature is a big brother who makes it possible to dunk. Every yard should have one of those!
This is one of my favorite parts of our backyard. This beautiful corgi girl named Sophie.
Every yard also needs a mirror. I use this one often to look at myself. Drives Rich crazy.
Last but not least there's the farmer's tan. No yard is complete without it.
This is where we spend a majority of our summer. There's also soon going to be a large veggie garden.
--Do you have a large backyard? What is your favorite thing about it?
See you tomorrow!
