My wish for every youngster would be that they discover the wonders of the backyard. It might simply be the joy of being outside breathing in the fresh air and enjoying their natural environment. It might be the miniature zoo of unique and fascinating insects and ‘bugs’ that captures their fancy. Perhaps it’s the flora found there that sparks their interest and lets the imagination run wild. Better yet, the backyard might become a shape changer; a jungle, a pirate ship, the frontier, a racetrack, the sandlot, as many enchanting venues as the imagination can create.
