Spring continues its inevitable arrival, and I am continuing to look up and look down for a weekly photo pairing, inspired by Helena. This week I am out back again. A few years after we purchased our house, we purchased the undeveloped lot behind our house. We fenced it, leveled it, threw down grass seed and planted a few trees. Someday we will build a one story house on it where we can live when we can no longer manage a large house with stairs. In the meantime, it's been a play yard (first for the kids; now for the dogs). Today's look up photo is a picture of the latch on the middle gate which divides our back yard from the "back back" (as we call it). And I'm looking down at a small patch of weeds flowers, a sure sign of spring. What do you see when you look up and look down? I realize, for me, it's a window on the future.
