Don had this hammock in the backyard of the Madison house long before I met him and he now has it in our "new backyard", although he had to purchase a hammock stand in order to hang it.
In Madison, we had oak trees close enough that it could be hung from, but that isn't the case here. The house is in a clearing and if Don were to hang it between 2 trees, he'd have to go into the woods a bit and we didn't think it was a good idea......he might become more of an attraction to mosquitoes, which, I must admit, aren't too big of an issue right now, but earlier in the season.....WOW! We've had some very dry weather for several weeks and it's my belief that the mosquito population has dwindled due to that. It's worth having to water the garden beds almost daily to not be immediately attacked when one walks outdoors. ;)
Here is more of our backyard view.....
The man is in his element!
Here is photo taken from the deck that shows how far away the hammock is from the house. Definitely a plus for some personal space, eh? ;)
