Our home sits on property that was left alone for 20+ years. Being smack in juniper country, the land is arid and scrubby. We're slowly but surely putting together a backyard we can enjoy, with a firepit - reminiscent of the camping we love to do but rarely have time for - as one of our key features.
Very much a work in progress, and these photos really are just meant to capture the journey.
