ROUND ROBIN - BACKYARD






Most of all European average backyards are not very big especially in cities. There is not enough room. To Americans, Australians and Canadians, it may seem very small but everybody here is happy when he can call even a little handkerchief sized backyard his own.


Our backyard is not very much larger then the backside of the house 6 m (20 ft) on each side.

But big enough for us to enjoy the garden when the weather is nice. Here you can see cat Kim taking a sunbath.


Behind our garden was a big corn field which we could enjoy over 30 years, but now houses are beeing built unfortunately.


We have a very big wheeping willow tree at the end of our garden. 30 years ago it had been a small stick with some leaves and now ....

Fortunately we are very lucky to have a small wood which seperates us from the next houses and gives a nice view. Here is a sunrise.

What a pretty backyard. It looks like a lovely and relaxing place to spend an afternoon. Maybe reading or listening to music. Thanks for sharing your views with us. :)

That's just enough to be able to enjoy the garden and yet not to have to do too much gardening - so I call it perfect :-)

Oh, I LOVE your willow tree! We used to have one in our back yard, too :-)

You have very pretty scenery in and around your backyard. I like the way Kim was included, too. :-)

That's a nice yard. Ours is about the same size, but nothing grows other than a few scraggly trees.
