“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

Yesterday's Yard


Blue skies and white clouds make a beautiful backdrop for our garden home.  Here are a few pics that were snapped showing summer's green fashion in both maintained and natural areas around our home.  Spring and early summer rain has kept the landscape very green ... and in some parts a jungle of overgrowth that needed to be cut back around the veggie gardens.

What a lovely home and gardens you have. Love the countryside you have surrounding you also.

Oh, so very beautiful. I love BB, but it is never as green as where you are & we don't have grass. We don't get much rainfall here.

Thank you for sharing. What a lovely place. :)

Your first pic looks like that airplane is coming in for a landing, right in the middle of the lawn.

Pictures like this really make me long for a yard of my own.

How very beautiful! I'm happy with you that you've had enough rain to keep your yard green this far into July!

What a beautiful spot, and a beautiful yard. I try to be happy with my city lot, but it is just so small and there is so much to grow!
