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.
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!
