Up the Hill

Our house sits on a hill on a half-acre wedge-ish shaped lot with the most of the backyard on a steep slope, covered with rocks to keep the hill intact.  There is a rickety stairway going up the hill on one side to an unlandscaped area that is mostly, um, weeds.  We had the weeds cut down this summer, and this week I finally ventured all the way to the top of our property! Before, I had been concerned about what might be living in those weeds and didn’t really want to walk through them, chicken that I am.

At the top, I could stand at the edge of our uphill neighbor’s property and enjoy the view over our house to the hills and also see our neighbor’s fields at the top of the hill. Pretty!

I’m linking up with Friday Finds today.

  1. So glad you took a little artistic license, as I love the effect. There’s something about images of lone trees and meadows against sky . . .so organic. . .. and so serene. Nature always inspires.

  2. When the photo is creative with the distinct purpose of being artful I love the results and there is nothing wrong with creating.
