THE SANCTUARY

My favorite place to spend a summer day, our backyard.

Today was the first time in our 17 day vacation that we didn't go anywhere, and it was a much needed and enjoyable day just hanging at home, most of it in the backyard.

We put out the lawn ornaments today and Rob planted a few Marigolds. We had a BBQ for  lunch, followed by me having a nap on a blanket on the lawn. The budgies enjoyed the weather from their cages on the deck, and Meadow found lots of shady places to nap. We enjoyed watching the birds splash around in the bird baths, the antics of the many squirrels that call our backyard home, and kept a watchful eye on the 2 bird houses now home to young.  It was a perfect way to spend the last day of our vacation.

I look forward to spending most of our summer weekends the same way.

It is always nice to have a space to call our own. A private retreat.
