Every spring we let the yard go wild in the back, especially around the playhouse, where a patch of poppies grow. They are so airy and blow and bend with the spring winds. And the colour!! It is amazing… I can feel a poppy doll or two coming on!!
Above is a poppy budding and below one that is out.
Here is a shot of the playhouse we built for the kids a few years ago. The kids helped build it too, with hand split shakes and the whole nine yards. It has a little tower inside, a trap door in the floor and a slide. The wysteria is just starting to bloom which hides the playhouse a little and gives it shade in the summer.
