Becky’s idea is that people should give a photographic tour of their back gardens. So, here is ours in Cambridge UK (regular readers will not be surprised that it’s not the tidiest most elegant garden ever… )
They are nominally split as flowers/herbs/lawn and vegetables/fruit trees/climbing frames – but mostly there are lots of weeds (although once the weather gets warmer, I expect we’ll get out there – although it cuts into knitting time… ) We’re lucky to be looking over fields – we have lots of space, although in the next few years these fields will be built on. On the far left is the local hospital – they have also been building, so the maternity hospital is now obscured – when I gave birth to both Adam and Ruth I could see our house from each of the delivery rooms – not a home delivery, but an “in sight of home” delivery (not that I was looking at the crucial moments!)
As we wander back towards the house we may as well look at a few things more closely:
six comments:Oh, Anne, your yard is lovely! Beautiful and spacious! I am a bit envious, but I know how much work that must be! My little postage stamp of a lot takes lots more work than I am willing to put in!
Your flower garden is just gorgeous when flowering. And I’m going now to look up brassicas. Imagine. I don’t know.
My kids had a turtle like that sandbox. They used to love it so much!
And thanks for the sky. Nice knowing that our sky looks a bit the same today even though we are half a world away!

Amy () (link) - 05 March '06 - 21:15Anne, so sorry that I was late adding your name to the Fieldtrip list! I missed your comment somehow earlier. Forgive me! I love the grassy path and the wide open space surrounding your home. I’d love to see it later when everything is greener! I’m planning on having a monthly fieldtrip of some sort so come back again and join me!
