I love my yard this time of year. It’s one of the main reasons my husband and I bought this house – even though we’re in the middle of town, in a residential area, we have a super private yard, front and back. One side is lined with cedar hedges, the other by raspberry bushes and a couple maple trees, and the front by giant green bushes (the name of which escapes me). Throughout the yard are lilac bushes, apple trees, a spruce tree, a pine tree, ivy and a whole lot of other smaller plants and bushes. It really is a private, spectacular garden.
