I take my front yard for granted sometimes. Until I catch other people taking pictures of my house or in one case an artist painting it from the beach.
And I look outside and catch views like this and it never fails to squeeze my heart. I mean, seriously, this is my front yard?
Things are a-hopping in my town, many interesting upcoming events like an art/artifact show. Plans in the works for a harvest fair next year with competition for the biggest potato, prettiest lettuce, etc. and sales of produce.
I am amazed at how much growing happens here. And then all those berries (12 berry seasons!) free for the picking on hill and dale. My freezer is full. Jamming season has begun. Pictures to follow.
More and more residents are truly seeing this beautiful town with new glasses.
We had a competition for the best photograph for a new sign - now installed - and the feedback has been amazing. A sailboat at sunset and two locals planted a matching flowerbed - all red and yellow and orange - underneath it. A stunning work of art on the roadside as you approach the town.
I am taking a simple joy in simple pleasures and I highly recommend it.
