Friends of mine stopped in Amsterdam on their way to Egypt and visited the wonderful hammock store near the flower market. They brought me a colourful Guatemalan hammock that has been strung under our Omani mulberry tree in the garden outside my bedroom. The tree is now large enough to give shade in the summer and the summer winds blow through that section of the garden to cool any hammock-enjoyer. I tried it out yesterday afternoon and took this shot of sunlight on the green leaves against the blue sky. There are still mulberries in the branches but it was too hard to get up and pick them.
