Yesterday was dark and stormy but today is glorious! The sun is shining and the temperature is mild. I love sitting out on the back porch listening to the birds and watching the squirrels. We live in a housing developement and there are houses all around us but during the spring, summer and the beginning of fall, it feels like we live in a cabin in the woods. We are surrounded on 3 sides by trees (mainly maples) It is easy to forget that we have neighbors only a few feet away.
