Backyard Reunions: Easier Than You May Think

Family reunions are the times when many families come together. In some cases, they are only time that everyone in a family gets to see each other. Unfortunately, it seems as if family reunions are becoming a thing of the past. While family reunions still exist, they are not as popular as they once were. Due to having children, busy sports schedules, and long work hours, many families are unable to have a family reunion, but you may be able to change that.

As previously mentioned, family reunions are difficult because everyone has their own, unique schedule. Busy schedules are not the only reason why family reunions are becoming a thing of the past. Family reunions are also difficult because many families do not know where to have them. Many public parks and campgrounds are now changing their guests. For many, these fees are difficult to afford. If location is what is preventing your family from having a reunion, you may want to consider your own backyard.

The garden of Love by William Blake – Spring poetry

I laid me down upon a bank,
Where Love lay sleeping;
I heard among the rushes dank
Weeping, weeping.

Then I went to the heath and the wild,
To the thistles and thorns of the waste;
And they told me how they were beguiled,
Driven out, and compelled to the chaste.

Nature – Poem by Emily Dickinson

childrens-garden-wc-11x17
New feet within my garden go,
New fingers stir the sod;
A troubadour upon the elm
Betrays the solitude.
New children play upon the green,
New weary sleep below;
And still the pensive spring returns,
And still the punctual snow!
