Our backyards can be just another place for the dog to poo – or we can turn it into a heavenly haven.
Mine happens to serve both functions, and it was snappily captured on video by the extremely talented Eric Heithaus.
Having a backyard full of art is also wonderful, although it does have a couple of detriments.
One is the folks who think they have carte blanche to peek their nosy noggins above the fence just because they see a skeleton flapping in the wind.
Another is the HOA that gets cranky if any of the colorful stuff is visible enough to mar the overall beige-ness of the neighborhood.
My backyard wonderland was inspired by Valley of the Moon, although the style is quite different. It was also born of necessity, as I had no more room to put art inside the house.

Also – I am eventually going to add video regularly to my posts, which means less time for writing. Do you care?
What kind of videos do you enjoy: Stories? Quick snippets? Clandestine shots? Fun stuff set to music? Comedic commentary? Horror?
P.S. You know you’re gonna get animal stuff.
