After the recent winter weather that spread across the East Coast, some people might be thinking that it’s difficult to enjoy their yards during the winter months. You might not be able to stay outside for too long of a time, but you can still have fun. I learned today that one of the favorite things for Minnesota residents to do during the winter is to go ice fishing. Of course, you can’t do that in your backyard.
Of course, it’s quite easy to enjoy your backyard during the summertime. In Texas, summers can bring about temperatures that are more than 100 degrees each and every day. It’s fun to be outdoors, but that sun can really get to you. So it makes me think of the type of activities that Texans like to enjoy during the summertime, which is anything involving water.
Whatever type of yard you have, there are plenty of ways to enjoy your yard. One of my favorite things to do used to be gardening. I was building a secret garden in my backyard at the house where I lived last before moving to the coast.
When I was a kid, I used to enjoy playing catch in the backyard, and I also liked to play basketball after my dad put up a goal. One thing I didn’t enjoy was mowing the yard. However, mowing is part of landscaping so when I did own a house, I actually did enjoy mowing. It’s also fun to get out there in the yard with any pets you have and play. What are your favorite backyard activities that you enjoy during different seasons? Don’t forget the fall, when you can build a huge leaf pile and go jumping into the leaves.
