Introduction

A photo montage of my place in Yorktown Heights, NY

A half acre residential area built in the 1960s.

A few minutes from the Parkway and about one hour drive to NYC.

We have deer in our backyard...and a vegetable garden.

The Album - Summer of 2019

These photos are a piece of my life in Yorktown NY. We love the peace and quiet here. My wife loves to garden. It is her hobby and she is good at it. She has a natural green thumb. We planted flowers, vegetables and trees... We also have leek which I use to make dumplings. I also enjoy watching the birds. Some have built nest in the bushes and we watched as the chicks hatch. What an amazing sight.

I call this “a slice of heaven” for a good reason. I am a religious person. If there is a heaven, I would imagine it to be like this...peaceful, green with lush plants and flowers, full of nature and animals running Around. We have our share of the deer and raccoons and chipmunks...

Enjoy the slideshow...

My Rocks Collection...

Summary

These are my rock collection. They are taken from the various hikes I took over the years. Wherever I go, I would look for some unique rock and being them home. Someday, I am going to arrange them into a display case.

Hope you enjoyed my tour of heaven on earth.

I am truly blessed.

      Jack, Thank you for sharing the pictures of your home.

      Presently I am faced with 72 acres. I love to garden too, but not with quite so much acreage!

      Patience and love make a good garden. You are truly blessed!

      Betty, thanks for your kind words. I spend a lot of time in the shady path area. It is where I do much of my writing on HubPages.

      The credit for the garden and flowers goes to my wife who spend most of her time weeding and planting...

      Jack Lee,

      What a beautiful array of flowers and plants you've used to create your sanctuary.

      I have always wanted to turn my back yard into an area filled with flowers, vines trees and shrubs.

      I have a small vegetable garden and a few herbs, but you have created beautiful areas all around your yard.

      The pictures are lovely, and so is your yard! I know that it's taken a lot of work for you to have such a variety of different plants to enjoy. I love the rock garden!

      The yellow daisy's are just lovely too! My favorite picture is the pathway shaded by plants and trees. Very inspiring!

    working
