Summer in Our Backyard

On this last day of August I thought I'd take you on a tour of our backyard. "Are you coming?"... First we have Ms. Chipmunk helping herself to breakfast on the deck--- birdseed. She doesn't wait for an invitation. Okay we'll take the steps to your right and go into the backyard. Please follow me over to the area by the backstairs to where we have a repurposed porch swing---now a plant bench. Mr. Ken put the legs on for me. We'll move across the yard now...Are you keeping up? Here we have the "Memorial Bird Garden"--in memory of my Mom, she loved to watch the birds frolic around. There are Marigolds planted around the birdbath. Shall we move on? This area is next to our shed in the back part of our yard. When we got our new grill several years ago I repurposed this into a planter--Moss Rose is the occupant this year. Off we go... Our last stop is the west side yard--yes, it is HOT on this side of the house but we won't be here long. Since it IS soo hot over here we have given up growing ANYTHING (weeds like the heat). Off to your left as you look at this picture we have put down red mulch and GREAT BIG decorative rocks. Going towards the front of the house you will see this birdbath and flowerpot that holds birdseed. That's the end of our tour. We hope you enjoyed a little glimpse into our backyard. Fall is just around the corner so enjoy these last days of summer. ~Keep on Dreaming~

  1. I enjoyed the tour of your backyard. Many signs of fall are pushing in around us. I love fall but I am NOT a winter bird. Dread it with a passion so I am trying to push in every moment in the pool and flowers I can. 46 degrees here this morning, ya think the water is a little cool? Enjoy your day and may God Bless you.
