Now that it is warming up, our big backyard beckons with beautiful sunshine each afternoon. We have made many improvements to the yard of our house since we moved in, including a fish pond and vegetable garden. We have many plants in the ground now, including tomatoes, squash, cucumber, beans, peppers, and artichokes. We also recently landscaped more around the pond and added plants like lilies and ferns. I love spending time outdoors and it is a privilege to have such a large area to enjoy.
