I realized this winter that the sun never hits our patio in the backyard during the winter. In the summer we get sun on the patio all morning, but in the winter it never creeps past the square of grass. Even if it hadn’t rained so much this winter, I doubt we would have been out there; our backyard is wet and cold when it doesn’t get the sun.
Yesterday my kids were driving me (and each other crazy). It was supposed to rain in the afternoon, so at 11am I ushered them outside. It drizzled on us a bit, but not enough to send us in.
At one point I took my camera out to take some picture of the blossoms on the plum tree, and my son demanded a turn. These are some of the pictures he took. I love seeing the world from his point of view.
