Today we are on backyard time. We are taking the time to appreciate the sun and garden, smell the roses, listen to the hum of the bees, build sandcastles, lounge around with the cat and pick lunch straight from the plant. Such simple pleasures found just feet from my back door. It is a wonderful gift to be able to sit with my daughter in the shade of the pear tree and eat a lunch of peas, carrots, raspberries and blueberries all picked only moments before sitting down. I think we all need a little more backyard time.
