Backyard fieldtrip



Here are two shots from the step of my back door. One shot looks across the patio to our pergola. In the summer, there is wisteria growing across the top of it. It is our favorite place to be on summer and autumn evenings. The other shots looks towards our backyard. To the right of the steps leading to the grassy area is a waterfall. We have it turned off now but the sound of it is wonderful when it is running - so peaceful. We can't wait to see some green again. In the summer, the entire back is filled with flowers - perenniels and annuals - so colorful.

It's sunny this morning and 30 degrees.

Bonnie your views are beautiful! And even though I'm in FL it doesn't feel a whole lot warmer here this morning. Although it is beautiful out there.

Thanks so much for sharing. We'll be doing another Fieldtrip next month if you want to play again!

It's beautiful even if it's not green. It looks like the perfect place to sit and knit.

Your views are lovely!!! I love the "sculptured" or terraced space you've created. I really prefer that to a flat yard. And a waterfall? I need to get me one of those...
