  2. You have very pretty yard, Margaret. A nice "Y" word too. I wonder about your back yard. What is past the trees? (Our back yard is a golf course so we cans see there.)

    1. Beyond those trees is about 50 acres of woods, 30 acres of which is green space. There is a small creek at the edge of our property.

  15. Beautiful photos. Even the weed is pretty. My neighbor has a planter full of dandelions -- wondering if that was intentional.
