Years ago when we bought our new house, the broker kept commenting on our vistas.
"There's not a bad view in this house," she said.
Actually, there is one bad view, and it's in the master on
my side of the bed. But if that's the only bad view,
I'll take it.
Since that time we have planted and weeded and planted some more.
Seventy-plus items in the backyard alone.
I should mention there was nothing back here.
My husband built this patio. He's a multi-talented guy.
In planning our gardens, I kept vistas in mind.
How would these flowers and shrubs and trees look
from inside the house?
In all honesty, everything looks better than I envisioned, especially this summer with such
cool weather and plenty of rain.
I have soaked it up, both from inside and outside my house.
Soon it's back to reality, but right now there's still time for another
garden project, lunch with a dear friend, movie nights with my girls,
