…Hah! In the brief time it took to type this in on my phone, Sarah’d had enough togetherness and got down.
Emma wants to be right up next to Sarah. Most of the time Sarah gets right down, but tonight she’s more tolerant.
Emma twists her limbs into some impressive configurations. This one tonight was especially endearing. If I could get her to pose like this on command, I could put her on a street corner with a tin cup. I bet we could really bring in some coin!
No matter how often I see the spectacle, I am always amazed at how beautiful the sun is on the sycamore’s bark. That’s meadow rue blooming down on the left. When We first looked at this house back in 1999, I was excited to see the huge sycamore in the back yard. I’ve always wanted one. We hope it outlives us, or at least our tenure here. Most of all, we don’t want to witness what it’s like to have a 90′ tall tree fall on your house…or the expense of having it taken away even if no houses are harmed.
We were a little surprised when we got the first blind up on its hooks, thinking they would be more opaque. I’m not sure if these will shade us like the sheets (a.k.a. my redneck, add-on canopies) did last year. I guess that remains to be seen. One thing’s certain, however: They sure look better than the sheets did!
