Lucky you still having colour on the trees - we're experiencing the first snow of winter!The use of the word "yard" doesn't sit well with me. It's a beautiful garden, whereas "yard" means something hidden round the back of the house which houses the dustbin or I suppose I should use the phrase trash can?
Front yard, front garden -- it is one of the little things about the English language that varies between the US and the UK.If I have a grass lawn behind my house and dig part of it up to plant vegetables then I would say I have a vegetable garden in my back yard. There are lots of examples of this sort of thing.England and America are two countries separated by a common language. --George Bernard Shaw There is even a blog devoted to this sort of thing. See: http://separatedbyacommonlanguage.blogspot.com/
Two great minds think alike - I was trying to remember the Shavianquotation and wanted to use the word "sea" and knew full well I was incorrect. Thanks for the reminder.Thanks also for the new blog site - I shall look with interest.Anne
