Lots of people are looking for ways to reduce the boredom of spending so much time at home & away from friends. I thought it would be interesting to share some backyard views and other related photos. I feel very fortunate not to be trapped in an urban setting. We can still spend a lot of time outdoors without risking our health. As for boredom, I now realize it's time to get out the pressure washer and clean our enclosure. At least the morning was peaceful for a while...

Now you've got me going! Oh how I long for the warm weather. We were supposed to leave next Wednesday for you state - but now we're on self quarantine. Bummer. But awesome photo.

Watch out, RodW! Sweetie and I may be coming to shelter in place with you! Just last night she was saying (AGAIN!) that she wanted to move someplace warm!!

I told her last night that I was feeling sorry for the folks on the Gulf Coast of FL. Two of our "go-to places" are Indian Rocks beach (fly into St. Pete) and Ft. Myers Beach. Both of those areas were hit hard economically with the Red Tide for the last couple of years. I hope that they survive the lack of tourists due to this situation.

The view from my chair currently - this is to the west. North, south, and east - same view just without the pavilion and creek - just trees.

So any shelter in place stuff doesn’t affect me at all. I have plenty to do outside and spend time outdoors every single day without seeing another person.

OK I will play. Just finished my morning inside workout. I do 1 hour every morning and then outside for many more hours of activity. Hard to follow up the bud picture but I am sure I can come up with something a little later on!

I'm headed out with the pole saw to trim some branches so I can leave the ROPS up while mowing this year. Temps were in the 70's Thursday so I got some done then. Today I also plan to take down a couple old dwarf apple trees that never really produced anything edible (cedar rust), but I let grow to feed the deer. Last year there were less than dozen apples between the two.

So glad I live here an not in a condo.

Stan, you should adopt me. I'm green with envy!

I start the morning in the breakfast nook looking out over the back yard. The nook is windows on three sides.

Once the sun comes up too high I shift to the dining room converted to office with a view into the front yard.

One half of the backyard. Couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.

Home office as of last week. View out the back door taken last summer. Wish it was nice enough to have the screens in/open now.

The pup has enjoyed hanging out in the shop this week. Nice and quite out there.

Yes that’s an autographed photo of Michael Landon over the dart board...
