My Backyard #TheGallery

Posted on 25th May 2011 in #thegallery/ children/ garden/ LEGO/ love/ superheroes

I was a bit thrown by The Gallery prompt of ‘My Backyard’ as my garden isn’t anything special and I know a lot of you guys have wonderfully planted, loved and tended to gardens that will lend themselves beautifully to artful photography.

Then I thought about what my backyard means to me; a place of sanctuary? No. A place of noisy and boisterous play? Yes! My backyard is all about the 2 boys who play in it, who bounce on that trampoline in a way that stops my heart as I anticipate bad landings and trips to A&E, who trample my plants because they are too busy avoiding imaginary attacks from LEGO warships and who care not that the grass is worn.

Superheroes play in my backyard.

    That photo is hilarious. I have a vision of a load of naked superheroes, tapping their fingers, waiting for their washing to dry so they can fly off and do daring deeds again. Great pic.
