Backyard tour




This post is for Becky's backyard tour. It's an interesting challenge to decide what part is our "back yard" - since we live on top of a hill, with a circular drive running all the way around the hill and up to the house. I ultimately decided to just leave off the view from the front door.

It's winter here still in the Great Northwest - and that translate to .. brown.
The fruit trees are dormant still, the fairy garden lies idle, and the raised beds (there's six of them in total) remain covered in the hopes of killing off all that crab grass.

Mount Rainier is hiding behind the rain clouds this morning. The good news is that we still are able to see beauty amidst the brown.
Give us another month out here and the flowers will arrive :-)

Oh my - I almost forgot the bottom of the hill view - our beautiful animals! Here's a peek at a few of them - they add quite a bit of character to our view!

Oh wow! What a wonderful view you have (in fact, what wonderful views!) They look great now, they must be fantastic in the spring. (I really miss hills - I live in Cambridge UK, where it's FLAT!)

The animals are gorgeous! And the MOUNTAINS? Breathtaking! I love the bark of the tree in the 2nd picture! It fascinates me!
Thanks for sharing your part of the world! Who would have thought it was possible to see so many places in one day?

Teyani you have a gorgeous view! I'm envious! And fruit trees? You've really landed yourself a little slice of heaven complete with fiber bearing animals. Can I come pitch me a tent in a wee corner?

Girl I am sooo sorry to be adding your entry to the list this late. I worked like a fiend all day adding people to the list but I missed a few. Forgive me.

I love your pics. And of course you know what part of the backyard is my fav right? Have we picked out which mama is going to have my little Gypsy? GRIN
