Things I Love About My Yard

Strawberries, white cherries, raspberries, rhubarb, strawberries, lettuce, spinach, radishes, strawberries, onions, budding zucchini, tiny pumpkins and grapes, strawberries, blooming tomatoes, peppers, cantaloupe, watermelon . . . and more strawberries! (These things don't quit! We've gotten so tired of picking them that we've missed many along the way.) And don't forget the green plums with all their promise!

And non-edibles -- lilacs, roses, tulips (in season, of course!). Not to mention our young columbine and mystery plant with the red blooms the girls gave me for Mothers Day.

Other perks of our yard: target practice with the BB gun defending our cat's food from cat burglars, wind rustling through the leaves in our monster trees, and a pirate ship and various swings to encourage hours of fun for little ones even when I'm not up for frolicking!

Your yard sounds wonderful. That's one of the not-so-fun things about moving into a brand-new house. We have to do all the landscaping. With having a baby we didn't do much this year, but we are planning it out so we can make some preparations for next year in the fall.
