backyard




It's nice to have a backyard.
This is a partial view of it here as I was standing in it at the time. It's a little deeper and there are hedges on the left and back and a fence on the right. So far I've discovered some flowers..a few daffodils came up, bleeding hearts and I found dead hydrangea so I'm guessing a few of the plants are them. We will see what else when I've some time to poke around. There is a lilac tree but I'm not sure if it's our property or our neighbors. The dogwood you see in the back there is not on ours but, it was in it's glory the first few days we were here. It's now shedding it's blossoms.
We inherited a clothesline and compost bins. I've wanted to learn about composting so it's on the list. The list is long.

lovely backyard nancy, it looks like something out of the fifties with the cute aprons on the clothesline. i'd love to start composting as well, it cuts down so much on garbarge, but our backyard is the size of a postage stamp and I'd like to leave the minute patcho of grass that we have for the kids to run around in. plus if you're not an avid gardener what do you do with all that compost?!

I wish I had a backyard...I guess I'll just have to make due with staring enviously at yours.
