Spring Yard

poppy budding

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.
