The slope from the beach up to the yard is still in it's muted winter colors. By June it will be lush with clover, Queen Anne's lace and daisies. Hopefully the wild roses will be back too, though they may be too deeply covered with the sand that blows up the hill in the winter. The bare tree on the left is a big willow which gives wonderful shade on the beach. The two pines at the far right are where I hang the hammock in the summer. It's a heavenly place to read or daydream or drowse an afternoon away. And the boys know it's a "no roughhousing" zone!
I am so truly blessed.
