OUR BIT OF PARADISE


This will be the backyard of our new home. As you can see, its really huge. I'm standing among the fruit trees looking across the back lawn to the master bedroom and the patio area. Off to the right on the middle edge are lots of grape vines with a pretty good crop on them.
My Granddaughter loves the big expanse of grass. We'll be able to play badmitton on it and not worry about the birdie going over the fence into someone elses backyard.
There's even a gravel pathway all around the grass. Perhaps I'll be able to do a lap or two in the privacy of my own home.
Maybe now you can see why we are anxious to move and finally call this place our Bit of Paradise.

That is such a nice back yard. I know that you are going to enjoy it. Badminton there would be fun.

Oh that's lovely! So much room. Funny, I just posted a pic of MY back yard too! We must be mentally communicating in some strange way. Scary!!

You are so lucky. Yes I can see why you are so anxious to move in and call it yours.

Hope you have a riding mower :)

Susan said...

That is my idea of a dream home. WOnderful setting and the patio looks so inviting. This beats those enormous homes with tiny yards anyday!
I love it. I know you will be so very happy here.

I love seeing your grandbaby go running though the grass. The house just seems perfect.

Anna said...

Love your back "garden" as they say here in Britain....a yard is a junkyard...so they dont say that here. And garden just rolls off the tongue doesnt it?

:) Take care Sue.

It looks like a very nice house. The shaded patio looks like a great place to sit down with a good book and a glass of ice tea on a summer's afternoon. I'm sure you'll enjoy this house!

Think of the future and plant at least one oak tree.

Nice photograph of your property.

Baby raccoons. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Pretty, red-headed granddaughter! How sweet to see her running there in that serene space. I hope the days fly until you are there, enjoying the place as your very own.

JAM said...

Lovely. And I remember what it felt like to be a little kid like that and just run for the heck of it.

A nice place. I Hope you're well in your new home!

That red-head running through the grass must be a grand-daughter? What a wonderful place to frolic. You'll be very happy there.

Wow Sue! This looks really nice, and it certainly looks like your granddaughter is enjoying herself!

We bought a new home, and the landscaping is up to us. A huge project, and very expensive! Next time I buy a place, that will be considered.
