Summer in the Backyard

Please enjoy some of the scenes from our backyard this past week. Our projects are winding down and now I hope for some time to relax and enjoy our yard during the (finally) warmer months this summer.  Morning coffee on the  deck, quiet evenings in the yard or under the pergola can be the best moments of the day.  Felting, crafting or reading outside in the soft warm air can be transcendent, and harvesting your own food is one of the most soul-satisfying chores there is. I love to create the days meals while I peruse the very fresh market that is my backyard. Now if I only had an outdoor bread oven!

Chores, Chores, Chores - or - No Time for Dancing!

Life has been busy this spring. While the summer season has not officially started, it is beginning to feel like it might just be here. The plants are really starting to bloom, the grass continues to grow, school is winding up and the tomato plants are starting to perk up. And we have had a couple of projects keeping us busy at home for the past few weeks.
