Show Us Where You Live

So for the first time I've decided to participate in Show Us Where You Live Friday that Kelly at Kelly's Corner hosts.
Let me start by saying that I love my yard, it is child and dog friendly...that is what it most important about the back yard. I told Ron after he got sick that I liked out big yard when he was the one cutting the grass...when I have to do it I don't love it so much!! I now have a friends son cut my lawn! This picture is taken from out balcony...we also have a lower deck (so great for BBQs).

When Ron was sick he couldn't be left alone and wasn't able to get out (other than out on our balcony)...without a lot of effort. We decided to get Michaela the swingset for her 4th birthday...if we couldn't take her to the park we'd bring the park to her! She got the trampoline for her 5th is a great place to play! The little blue shed is going to eventually become a playhouse...that is the plan anyway.

This maple tree our care group got and planted last year in remembrance of Ron, it was very touching...we call it Daddy's tree. This picture isn't very good, oh and you gotta love the heavy duty stakes keeping it straight.

The front yard I keep pretty simple...and someone trying to get in the picture! Most of the plants are in containers, I do have some roses planted...and they are gorgeous.

I just cut these yesterday...even Buddy had to get in the picture (I think my family likes the camera or something)!

We call this the upsidedown tree, I'm not sure what it is called. I got it a couple of years ago on sale, I just love the look of it. The branches just hang down, in the spring it flowers and now it has little berries.

There is my yard, I love it...especially when the sun is shining!! Time to get out and enjoy it!
