Backyard bliss

My little corner of the world...


Just a little glimpse into where I'm hanging these days.

  • Out back of the house, a rescued table and plastic chair, plus an old fish crate to rest my feet on, furnish a secluded corner to sit and read.
  • An old crab apple tree provides a splash of pink joy while the stick fence seen in the background keeps the expectant garden contained (& deer out).
  • One of many lilac bushes aburst with blooms.
  • The woodpile grows in anticipation of winter, even though summer is not yet here.
A simple life.

    1. Excellent application of that old adage about fences! The deer have acres of forest to graze in but prefer the garden salad bar, given half a chance. My little corner of the world is a pleasant place to be in many ways...which I try to remind myself daily.

  2. It looks idyllic - we have deer in the garden too, but fortunately they tend to graze on our hedges which helps to keep them trim!!!

    1. Sounds like a win-win situation, getting to admire the deer and getting the hedges trimmed at the same time. No matter how pesky they may be, it's always a bit of a thrill to catch sight of deer in one's yard isn't it?

  4. The last time I saw your house was in a blizzard, the snow was 8 feet high, and it looked like it would never all melt. Are you sure this is the same place???

    1. The summer and autumn are what keep me hanging on here, Jann. A lovely place to be in those seasons. It's always amazing how the lush green of early summer suddenly bursts upon the scene. We just won't mention the black flies and mosquitoes that come along with it.

    1. I imagine it would be a nice respite from all that gad-abouting you get to do, Jenny! Want to swap for awhile?

    1. No problem! I'm sure there's another crate out in the shed/garage...just your size. Bring on the bubbly--things are far too quiet around here!

  10. Looks like a peaceful enough place, but if that Sagittarian shows up with bubbly, I imagine all that could change in a hurry... :-)
