A nice shot of the woodland corner of the garden during our annual summer party. This spot remains cool in the summer and brings a little bit of the forest into our urban Van Nuys back yard.

I have my bird feeders and birdbath in this area, too. My wife’s favorite willow swing, the second we have owned, sits in the corner with comfortable cushions. The kids often find this secluded spot during the party to get away from all the adults.

On a more prosaic note, my composters sit at the right side if the photo.
