THE BACK 40: Memorial Day 2006

Dad named the shed THE BACK 40 about 22 years ago when it was built, as our address is 40 Carnegie Avenue. But it has come to mean the whole back yard area over the years. The weather was so spectacular today I thought I'd capture "The Back 40" in all its glory. - jrb

North View. Back 40 to the right. Waterfall behind it. And in the pool is "Wilson" - our Polaris vacuum. He does a great job!

 

Looking westward. The studio door is on the left.

 

This is looking north. A better shot of the waterfall.

 

Looking South-East from the house is the rock wall garden that Josh built last year replacing the railroad ties from 40 years ago.

 

Inside the back 40. North Wall. Josh collects things. We don't ask questions. The Yellow sign says, "BEER is the reason I get up every afternoon".

 

Inside the back 40. East Wall.

 

Inside the back 40. South Wall.

 

This is the view looking south from the end of the diving board. Josh extended the fence almost to the road. Horseshoes will be going in soon.

 

Looking west into the studio doors. It's like having beachfront property!!

 

.... and last but not least, the Korean Dogwood in full bloom!!
