Yellow jasmine and pink camellias.
On the left, a cut-down crape myrtle; on the right, the cut-down hydrangeas. Due to whatever acidity level of the soil, the hydrangeas mostly come out blue.
Amazingly, we do not live in a rural area. This is just a stretch fifteen feet deep behind the house, and I took all the pictures from the deck. We are squarely in the suburbs, very close to downtown [Suburb of Birmingham], about five minutes from a small shopping center. Sporadic outbreaks of woodland are pretty common in Birmingham,
which is one of the reasons I love it so much.
I have no idea what kind of tree this is. But it's pretty damn tall.
I love the idea of there being tiny little elfin worlds in the yard.
When the dogs were puppies, they chewed a hole in our deck fence. So now, it's Scout's lookout post.
Scout and Sam, who is enjoying the weather.
Pictures of Shelby I just barely managed to get; there are a dozen others that are just blurs of her shaking her head.
HEY COULD YOU LET US IN KTHANX
Scout's life as a dog is so very, very hard.
The rest of the pictures are under the "march2009" tag; I won't burden you with them here. There's a few pictures of my cat and random things around the house, nothing terribly exciting. Although our faux-French clock is nice.
