My backyard in Salt Lake City, Utah


This week the corner view theme is "Out your back door or window". We live in a four-plex apartment in a house downtown. Luckily we share the backyard, so we can grill and have summer parties. This is what you would see if you peeked out my back window.

See other backyard views..

We are all about grilling in the summer! It gets so hot in our house that I try not to even turn the oven on!

I have my own outdoor space, but I now feel the need to find someone to share a grill with!

aimee said...

i'd love to share a backyard with someone so i could shirk some of my yard duties!

Joyce said...

You have a great place to view and grill. What time is the barbecue? Enjoy! xoxo

Kimmie said...

Hmmmm I can smell it now :) It must be like a mini-block party every time someone fires up the grill - how fun!!!

I have always loved to share back yards. Sometimes spontaneous company and sometimes just hearing the sounds of talk, play and laughter through ones window. Your photos are great.

trinsch said...

Jeannette said...

So...it´s official...we all come over for your BBQ. Everyone is allready bringing food or drinks...I will bring along the band!
Have a great day my dearest, Jeannette

Erin said...

I love that your photos look sorta vintage-y. We have lived in many apartment buildings and having an outdoor patio, even if it is shared, is a nice added bonus!

vanessa aka Nessie Noodle said...

alwasy good to have a bit of space for back yard grilling :)

I thin I fixed the video on the post- let me know if it isn't working- weird.

and yes, Daddy-O should get an award, or be a landscape architect. he missed his callinng.

april said...

dear caitlin, summer parties sounds great. and i like your photos. do you grill together with your neighbors? wish you a wonderful week*

caitlin said...

Um, some of our neighbors are what my husband and I lovingly refer to as wack-a-doodles.. so no, we usually keep our distance :)

Di said...

I too have the shared back garden, but unfortunately we don't often have the weather for cook outs!

Your place looks like a good place to eat burgers!

Pamela said...

As much as I love my house and garden, I do miss living downtown - any downtown! How nice that you have the backyard area, and friendly neighbors to get together with.

Kari said...

There's something about the combination of those pictures that puzzles me...somehow very mysteries. I like!!

Ian said...

Somebody was a very good bricklayer.
