A beautiful cherry tree in full bloom.  Something to look forward to!

 I have one of the yurts on this property.  The neighbours came over and asked the owner of the property what that funny blue structure was in his yard.  Not even the bees on the wall gave them a clue that this was our newest yurt!  The bees love it.  I love it.  No worries about wind or rain.  Lots of warmth inside the yurt to keep the larva warm during the day.

The Yurt was placed in a sunny spot away from trees or buildings that might throw a shadow on it.

Apple trees in full bloom with yurt in the centre of the picture, behind the trees.
