This is the first time that I am uploading photos in this blog. These were provided by Ryan Matzek, aka "Dr. Paul, Doctor of Good Times" of Guymon, OK. These are portions of our award-winning backyard in Park Lane. My wife and I would make many trips to the various area nurseries and pick out the flora that would suit our garden best. In 10 years, we planted more than 20 trees in our house alone. The foliage is lush because of the compost that I painstakingly applied each year.
The third photo shows a small grill surrounded by benches. When the night would become nippy, we'd put a few logs into the grill and huddle around the fire. Only the greatest drinkers in the region have merited an invitation to drink around that spot. The top photo reveals the porch coming from the master bedroom where there are 2 fountains that provide the sound of falling water the whole day. The second picture gives a peek of the side wrought-iron gate custom ordered from New Mexico which leads to a pergola encrusted with wisteria vines that harbors a patio arising from our beloved library. I'd better stop before I begin considering a career with Architectural Digest.
