I learn the before of my backyard

Mom told me today about what my backyard looked like before I came to live with her (taken from inside the house). This is what it looked like in the winter one year ago. Beautiful woods, lots of shade – the buildings in the background were so far enough away that in the spring and summer you didn’t even see them.

I would have loved to see these woods.view outside jan 2013

This is what these woods look like now – no woods at all!!101_1503

She said once they tore down all the trees the summertime heat doubled – as did her air conditioning bill!

Anyway, this is the backyard I know and love. Here I am playing in it!  

Howling like a wolf!

Toby always comes into the backyard with us.

Toby is so boring - all he does is eat grass.
