We live on a super wooded and hilly lot so there’s no room for grass. We enjoy the birds, bees, butterflies and wildlife. Here are my three favorite views.
These are blackberry lilies, about 3 years old, planted from some seeds Adam pilfered from a nearby establishment. The seed bods look like blackberries in late summer and we save a bunch to share with friends.
We have no grass, no flat areas except this little concrete patio you see here. This is the view from our rocking bench. I usually sit there and watch Lily playing in the sprinkler.
Since the backyard is so hilly, Adam built on a lovely deck into the hill to extend our usable space. It only took him 4 years to finish (with a little encouragement from me)! Of course, who wants to use it in 90+ degree heat? But when the weather is cooler, we do enjoy a nice family dinner out here.
