On a recent trip to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, we were invited to a family reunion hosted at the home of a family member. Peggy was born with a green thumb and a walk through her back yard (actually all around her house) will remove any doubts you may have about that. The central focus of the yard is the greenhouse built by her and her husband, Ronnie, from left-over building materials.
The most interesting thing about Peggy’s back yard is that every time you see it, you will find some little detail that you never noticed before. There are many small decorations throughout the yard that draw your attention to one plant or another and perfectly compliment the overall experience of being in such a warm, comforting place.
This small bird bath in the open window of the greenhouse is an example of the detail you find throughout the entire yard. If you looked closely, you would certainly find a variety of decorations taking the form of frogs, bunnies, squirrels, angels, playful children, birds and birdhouses, etc.
Peggy’s love of animals helps her to maintain all of the bird feeders, birdbaths, and bird houses scattered throughout the yard on posts, hanging in trees, and sitting in window sills. There are always birds of some kind in the yard either eating, bathing, or sometimes fighting among themselves.
But the birds aren’t the only animals that get to live in the beauty of Peggy’s back yard. There are also dogs! Lots of dogs! Currently, there are four. Robin, the latest addition was a puppy that was abandoned or lost during Hurricane Katrina. He found his way to Peggy’s yard and has never left. But then, who could blame him?
