Dream Big

From A Patch of Paradise, July/August 2004

If we're really picking our dream backyard, I would have to choose this lakeside oasis. Maybe it's extreme, since as a New York City dweller, I would happily take something much more modest, but I guess that's what dreams are for. I would grow my own veggies in the garden and enjoy them at the picnic table I would situate near the water. There is also a luscious naturalistic pool and spa with a waterfall river-rock embankment separating it from a larger pool. An outdoor kitchen is tucked in the corner making it official—I could live in this backyard.
