May 1967 - Ground Level View


Today's photo was taken just before or just after yesterday's. You can see the man working the garden earth to the right. I still do not know who it is. It could be Poppy, husband of my Auntie Dot, Grampa's sister. 

If you peer up the path towards the woods, you can see Champ watching you from his spot next to the old chicken shed. 

Tomorrow is June and the garden looks beautiful!

These photos are from my grandfather's collection of carefully labeled slides and photographs. Some include not only the exact date, but also the time of date. Grampa was a prolific photographer. The Magical Backyard is a collection of photo memories from my grandparent's (and now my aunt's) backyard. 

Spend some time here; enjoy the garden or sit in the shade of the big maple tree. It's a peaceful place enjoyed now by the fourth generation of the Smith family in Bristol, Connecticut.
