I've been walking around in my backyard the past few days ~ it's not a very flat yard so it's the perfect place to work on my balance exercises for my knee therapy. Our yard needs quite a bit of work ~ there's not a whole lot out there that I like right now. But I did find a few things that make me smile.
I love the moss that grows between the bricks...I especially love it when it grows between the cracks in the mortar. I like the little sticks that gathered on the brick path during the winter. Seeing all the little acorn caps makes me smile. Watching the squirrels gather the acorns that used to be in them was a happy past time. Pulling up dozens of miniature oak trees will be a happy past time too! : )
We have two huge oak trees in our yard and we have acorns and their empty caps everywhere!
We've raked up leaves and acorns twice already. It's time to rake once more...I'll definitely be keeping a pile of those acorns and their caps. You never know when you might need them.
