Our Backyard

I love my backyard.

It is a beautiful, peaceful sanctuary filled with birds....
 
Flowers....






trees.....





shrubs.......

 
Cats...............
 

 

Dogs..................


 
And my favorite part of the whole backyard is the Tri-Color Beech Tree that spreads its' beautiful branches and leaves over the north end of the backyard.
 
 

I have often remarked that if we ever move from this house, it will be the backyard I will miss the most.

And this is the best time of year to enjoy our backyard.

And today, when we had a party to celebrate Coco's graduation, the conditions in the backyard were perfect.  It was cool, but not cold.  The sun was shining, but it wasn't too hot.  I was amazed at the perfectness of the moment.

As friends and family gathered to celebrate our daughter's graduation, I was filled with gratitude at the people in our lives, and the place that we live.

I hope to spend a lot of time with my family and friends in my backyard this summer, building relationships, enjoying one another's company, and taking in the beauty of our backyard.
