Back Home



Hi all! I'm back from the wild western adventure, safe from cougars, bears, and the stray marmot or two! Hubby has all the photies, and as he's still up there with the wild animals....the children stayed with him ;)
... my sharing of the photos will have to wait
(I had to come back and work...drat the need for a paycheck!).

This is a spring photo of our backyard. The trees are live Christmas trees that we planted ages ago, and now make great shade for the 'melting' days that are upon us. (There's a climbing rose that's made its way almost to the top of one of the pines)

"It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit. "
~Robert Louis Stevenson

Wow! I bought a live Christmas tree once, but it died and felt so guilty I didn't do it again. Plus, we have no space for ENORMOUS pine trees! It must be satisfying to know you planted them, though.
