the big back yard

an experience of city and town

When i was kid i remember running about with my cousins at my Grandmother's house in the western suburbs. There wasn't a single tree in the yard - just lots of lawn and day long games of hockey and soccer.
The sun always seemed really hot and there were hardly ever any clouds. I thought the whole world was like this - huge yards with noisy kids.
Seeing archie and lachlan running about madly at their grandpa's brings back memories of this time

Thanks to
