yard envy

IMG_1888 The gate to Tyler's and Catherine's backyard has been open over the past few days.

IMG_1887 It's like an invitation to step inside.

IMG_1907 The sound of burbling water, just on the other side of the fence, is further invitation. Tyler's worked hard back here, and we all enjoy it. Outdoor get-togethers wind up in this yard because it's the perfect spot for kids and adults alike.

When I look at our yard, I feel inspired, but like we have a long way to go. I think that was just the effect Tyler was looking for! Good thing he says, "the gate's always open."
