Around the Yard

A couple of years ago, during Arbor Day celebrations, a tree organization offered free tree seedlings.

Hubs received one and planted it in our backyard.

Yikers, that baby has grown like a coconut tree! 

Wish I could see it ten years from now.

Our beloved fountain, purchased late one fall from Home Depot, has been unwrapped from winter garb once again and gives me great joy, peace and solace with its trickling water.

The birdies love to take sips from it as well as baths in  the fountain, much to my delight.

(Any ideas how I could conceal that hose behind the fountain?)

The white planter near it is filled with pretty pink and white flowers.

Who cares if they are silk? Not me.

Your tree is getting very big. You could spray paint the white cord a dark brick color.

I love that my outdoor space is like little rooms. Each a special sitting area with fountains and flowers and art. Makes me smile! :) Kit

Your yard is pretty - I enjoy yours - we have a back yard but it is wild. You could paint of tape the color of the brick or mortar on the wire??? sandie

Your yard looks like a peaceful place to visit, Susan. I really like your lady statue, and fountains are always soothing to hear. The red brick around the fountain is charming.

Happy July days.

love, ~Sheri


what a serene place your backyard is.
