Front and center is our barn, which we worked so hard to restore. If you haven't read about it, click on the 'Our Barn' photo on the sidebar.
The green garage is one of my better designs. I wanted it to look like a country carriage house that had been added onto over the years. It serves us well, and it fits into the landscape really nicely. (one day, I'll have to tell you about how and why I designed it.)
There's my pick-up truck ... my trusty truck. I haul all sorts of treasures in that truck. The Husband's truck is behind mine.
The Arcade holds nine climbing roses ... it's that thing in the sunshine beyond the garage that looks like a line of columns. It is beautiful when the roses are blooming, and it leads visitors to the Rose Field beyond the gate.
Framing the view, is our pecan tree ... the tree that arches over our entire back yard, that our daughter was married under last summer, and that I practically guard with my life. It is the best element of our property, in my humble opinion.
The window sill is deep, so it's hard to not pile stuff there. From left to right I see: two paintbrushes in a jar, a turquoise glass insulator, an African Violet, a Blue Pea plant that I brought back from Key West, and two tiny pomegranate trees. There's other stuff that you can't see in the photo ... like a 3-inch Saguaro cactus, another paintbrush, and the receiving unit for the remote thermometer in my greenhouse.
This view is only here during winter while the trees are bare. When spring comes, the barn gradually disappears and everything else is masked by leafy branches ... but there's always too much stuff on the window sill.
