Our little back yard is really special. It's a neat shape and has cool fruit trees and shade and flowers and even trees the right distance apart to hold our hammock. These are the things I am thankful for today.
|2. Our peach tree, heavy laden with ripe and wonderful peaches.|
|3. the late bloom of a hydrangea, which reminds me of the |
South and makes me feel more at home.
|4. this neat flower which I cannot name, but I think my mom has them in her yard in FL, |
and it makes me feel closer to her when I look at them.
|5. The brick and wood fence that stretches along the side of our yard |
and reminds me of our Pulaski St. garden back in Athens.
|6. Flannery's easel set up in our garage, some beauty amidst the unpacking mess.|
|7. sidewalk chalk that doesn't disappear for ages -- since it never rains here!|
|8. my thoughtful and industrious husband who saves us from |
the yellow jackets but protects our honey bees.
|9. my daughter running toward me when I come outside from doing|
laundry. She bubbles over with wonder.
|10. a camping hammock on a quiet lazy afternoon|
What are you grateful for that you can find right in your own back yard?
