perils with writing and whatnot
The prompt for this Stream of Consciousness Saturday was contributed by Pavowski in Linda’s absence.
When I first read Pavowski’s post on Linda’s blog, I thought this was so simple of a word that it was actually going to cause me problems. Yet, the more I thought about the word, the more possibilities I could see.
Above is a photo of how my backyard looked two summers ago. The photo doesn’t do it justice because the yard goes beyond both the left and right of the photo screen. This is the first backyard I’ve had that I have been able to say I love without hesitation.
Although the one I had while growing up was a little deeper, my father built a oversized 2-car garage back there. It took up half the width of the yard. I still played back there but any games with the neighborhood kids had to be conducted in the front yard where we could also use the front yards of the other kids.
The garden you see in the photo is filled with perennials. Annuals just don’t do well for me. What does this mean? That I have a light green thumb as opposed to a brown one? The two bushes are Rose of Shannon. The blooms don’t come out until the last part of June and die off by the middle of August.
I’ve seen bunnies, raccoons and those nasty possums in this yard, along with our beloved outside kitties. Hubby has seen a couple of deer too, although I have yet to view them.
Are you wondering why I despise possums? Have you ever seen one close up? They look like hairy giant rats with red beady eyes. I believe that the world would be a better place without these disgusting creatures.
Do you have a back yard?
