Well, it's been a little over two months
since we have moved to Idaho.
Let's take a tour of the backyard.
This is the view of the back
patio from our kitchen.
The red strip is a caution tape for a fast, moving,
6 year old,
who doesn't stop to notice that the
screen is closed.
To the left is the eating area.
To the right is the visiting area.
~early morning sun~
The patio is the whole length of the house!
When we were looking for a home,
I had three desires.
A west facing house, a covered back patio
and air conditioning
I got them all!
In the far corner is our "Papa Bear".
Our kids gave this to Tom a few years ago
for Father's Day.
He has been with us through all our moves.
The geraniums are very special to me.
The one on the left has been in our yard/patio for three years.
The one on the right has been with us for two years.
I have learned to "winter them over".
I'm hoping to do it this winter, too.
This area is our "garden".
(No, that's not a wishing well, it's our irrigation water.)
We are growing beans, peas, cucumbers, peppers and
hybrid, thorn-less, blackberries!
We have an apple tree and a peach tree, also.
What you can't see are the raspberries and grapes.
Ahhhh...cherry tomatoes and they are ready!
First thing I planted when I moved in.
One of my very favorite things to do in
is to hang out the laundry.
I have been wanting to do this for years!
