the backyard

This is the backyard my husband was a child in.  It's lovely in every way....with pretty flowers, wild forests, lots of lawn ornament friends, and great spaces for playing tag or running around.  I love the gardens my mother in law cultivates.  She hides little treasures in between her flowers and shrubs...little gnomes, fairies, ducks, tea cups...a random assortment of charm.  I need to spend more time back here....I'm always sad to leave.


  1. this actually makes me want to put decorations in my yard. which is very surprising for me.

  2. I just fell in love with a house on a lake that has stone steps lined with those purple flowers. All of a sudden, I've been seeing those purple flowers everywhere here. Now they're on your blog! Weird!
