The images in this gallery are found in my modest backyard. I always find something interesting to capture. I have a comfortable back yard, with plenty of shade from a Live Oak. which towers almost 60 feet above the patio. A soft gurgling fountain on one end of the patio near a table with four chairs. Silver Maples in the North and Eastern corners give a nice shade for relaxing in the hammock. The outer perimeter is a mixture of flowering plants. Blue Irises with gold throats are a base around the trees and o the Eastern Perimeter. Two Japanese Plums grace a small bed near the patio. At one time the fruit was close to the ground and easy to pick, The trees have matured, to the delight of the squirrels. There is a wealth of miniiture landscape pictures waiting to be captured.
