Photo of the Week

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!


  1. Beautiful. I love taking pictures around the yard. There's so much to enjoy in God's creation. :)

  2. I love those colors! We are certainly loving our yard, but it really is a lot of work. Good thing I like digging in the mud out there!

  3. Lovely photo. I lived in apartments for years, too, and now have a house. You're so right--it is a blessing to have a little patch of earth to call your own. Mine has a fenced in section so it was a great place to let my son run around when he was young. I haven't thought of it in years, but it really was nice to have the equivalent of a playground just steps from the house. Now I get to focus on gardening, which brings me pleasure. And, I love to take photos in my own yard, too! Thanks for the thoughtful message.

  4. Beautiful pic I live for spring and the chance to get out and watch everything "spring" to life. I don't think I could ever live in an apartment.
