OUR GROOVY BACKYARD

fall tree

We Β haven’t talked much about the backyard yet, and with everything going on inside at the moment, we probably won’t until the Spring. Β For now, we are sticking to house projects (of which we have plenty) rather than yard beautification, but that doesn’t mean we won’t share some cool stuff from the yard every now and then!

Speaking of cool stuff, check out what I like to call the “Tie Dye Tree” in our back yard. It’s dark green on the side that gets sun all day and full-on fall foliage on the other, shadier side. Β How cool is that?!

For us, it’s the little things that make a house a home, and this is just one of those lovely little quirks that you’ll never see until you’ve lived somewhere for a while. Β We’ll make sure to bring you other fun things we find, both inside and out!

    That tree is fantastic! The shape is really wonderful. Does it have strong enough branches to hang a seated hammock from?

    I love this time of year, for reasons such as that picture. Here in NJ, the leaves have really peaked this week and are just gorgeous. I love spotting the random bright orange ones that are around!

      Me too! I wish the leaves were this colorful year around. But I guess that’s what makes fall extra special πŸ™‚
