Soaring with Swings

Sometimes we forget the enjoyment that an old fashioned swing could bring.

Do you have one in your backyard?

All you need is a decent sized tree and the fun can begin! 

We have two on our property (shown below)...


This old eucalyptus doesn't give much shade

but it does bring much pleasure…


A swing doesn't have to be fancy…

Be creative!

Just a few lines of rope and

something to seat yourself on to!

Why not put one up today?

Girl on a Swing by Jesse Wilcox Smith 

The Swing

How do you like to go up in a swing, 
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!


Up in the air and over the wall, 
Till I can see so wide, 
River and trees and cattle and all 
Over the countryside-- 

Till I look down on the garden green, 
Down on the roof so brown-- 
Up in the air I go flying again, 
Up in the air and down!

By ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

  1. LOVE the pictures of your swings! I wish we could have one where we live now but we don't have a good tree. Hopefully when we are able to buy a house we can string up a swing! ;)
