Yesterday was a banner day in our backyard garden! The weather was BEAUTIFUL! Not a cloud in the sky and around 14 (C). I thought to myself, Gardening, bring it on!
It all started when the dog had to go outside for her, you know! We first encountered the blast of warm air and the heat of the sun. She hasn’t been in the backyard for some time now so she just walked around and took in the smells of the garden! During that time I dug through our back room and found a fold able chair and opened it up, directly in the line of sunlight.
She sat at my feet, beside me on the chair, and it was one of those Rockwell moments you see as we both were in ahh of our surroundings. It was everything that we could of asked for, especially after the long winter that we were exposed to. So what else could be added to this perfect moment right now in my terrace oasis? My Larrivee acoustic!
So I quickly ran upstairs and brought my axe out for the first time this year! As the song goes oh what a felling, what a rush!
Our dog midnight still doesn’t quite know how to take this thing I have on my lap. When I start playing, she sits up straight. Looks at me with those intense puppy eyes and tilts her head sideways. She reminds me of Edith Bunker when midnight does that!
The only song I played in the backyard was from Bruce Cockburn titled Going to the Country. I just love that on! I understand why repeating a song over and over drives some people nutz, but I have to play it RIGHT!
So that was my day yesterday and I thought that I’d share it with you! So go out there and ENJOY it … while you can.
Keep on Jammin’ (in the backyard)
