Since we acquired and renovated the house next door, we’ve also merged our two backyards to create something roughly as spacious as Versailles. Note the hammock on the right, perfect for lounging. The area in the center rear is honest-to-God DIRT (no S Philly concrete), and will be the site of modest urban agriculture in years to come. Meanwhile, everything looks particularly tidy on a late August evening.
