A New Door

That sounds like I'm moving again or something, but no really -- we have a new back door. Some times the little things (or in this case six-foot long things) make a big difference.

Update: LittleA wants a photo, so here's a picture. As you can tell, it looks like a door -- with a very handsome boy in front of it.



Where are the pictures? :)

Very nice. And a pretty yard too.

Love those doors and the windows in them are stunning.

Nice door, I have a pair of similar doors (4 doors) opening to my front yard and the pond, but what do I see behind your doors? A container of plants, yellow blooms (rudbeckia?), and some type of evergreen hedge?

The container has basil, thyme and marigolds in it.

Maybe I'll take a picture of the back garden next, although it is looking kind of sad. In the front, we have a baby magnolia with marigolds around it, along with some miniature zinnias, some day lilies, lambs ear and carrots that I need to pull up. Running along the fence are mostly some really tall (almost 6 foot) zinnias and rudbeckia, with a few other things in there. At the back fence we have a hackberry tree, under which used to be the coal dump. The soil is poor, it is partly shady and the dog runs through it all the time. Everything looks pathetic back there and I haven't really figured out a good solution for what to plant or do with that space. I'm not putting much in, until we put in some more good layers of dirt and compost.

The Boy is on the couch curled up with a book. Why am I not surprised?

Going by the way you describe it, I think you are raising the most literate children in the country.
