Lookin' out my back door

"...if I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own back yard."
-Dorothy Gale, The Wizard of Oz

Same chestnut tree in different seasons.

A finished, blocked shawl knit mostly by me, in Peace Fleece, for the church shawl ministry. I tried to get all creative with the foreground, but what I like most about this photo is the dapple of sunlight on the shawl. The Eucalan bath did what I hoped it would do, which was to relax and soften the fibers and make the wool lustrous.

Peeking out from behind the chair is the waggin' tail of Jimmy, who actually looked up for a photo.

He turned one year old on May 5th, and has grown into a handsome boy.

Not much knitting content in this post--but May does the most amazing things to the fraction of the acre we live on, and I wanted to share it with you. I leave you with a snap of J's favorite tree, the Golden Chain.

This post made me feel so peaceful, I want to paint both of those gorgeous trees
Lovely photos!!
Great pics of beautiful trees. And the dog is very cute too.
Hi Sharon!
Thanks so much for taking the time to so eloquently write your thoughts about democracy for my blog. I really appreciate it. I have bookmarked your blog for future reading. I hope you are having a wonderful day. :)
What glorious pictures! Your dog is so adorable! (I'm sure he knows just how cute he is, too!) Thanks for sharing the beauty of your yard!
I love those trees!!
