Treehouse Point in Fall City, Washington.
Americans love to assuage boredom by spending money on our backyards. It’s a little silly, and selfish. But…I’m not immune: I’d like a basketball hoop. I’d like a koi pond.

I’d like a big old rusted wrought iron fence, but I’d still like a way for the deer to come on in and wander around, as they like to do (haven’t figured that one out, yet).

Bonus round: other things I’d love to have in my backyard.
Dining table, work table, fresh tablecloths and (organic) garden:
But let’s remember: it’s not merely what we have: it’s who we are, and who we have to share what we are and have with.
