This is what's growing in my new backyard- isn't it pretty?!
I hope I never take my backyard for granted...EVER! I remember talking to some other mom's at a playgroup almost a year ago (while I was still in an apartment), and all of them were complaining about having to take care of a yard- I was amazed! How could they complain about owning a yard and home of their own?! At that point in time I would have given almost anything to have a yard of my own... and I silently vowed to never complain about having to take care of my yard.
So wherever you are, if you have a backyard, go out and ENJOY it... because you can!
