What you guys call a yard, we call a garden here in the UK! My son and his family took us to see a lovely formal garden and they were just wishing for one of their own! They are hoping to move house before the end of the year (new arrival expected later this month!) and it will certainly have a garden.
I am taking part in an online 'cyber crop' in the UK and the first challenge was to scrap 'Wishes and dreams' so this summed it up nicely!
