June 1967 - A Lush Green Paradise




We have skipped over into June and look how lush and green everything is! The flowers and vegetables have already been staked. The flower bed to the right is beginning to bloom. 

Someone has set up a lounge chair beneath the cherry tree. Champ stands ever ready and hopeful for a greeting. I see something out back that looks like a baseball pitchback that my son uses now. Wonder if that is what it is.

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.
