I was very disappointed recently when the house across the street was torn down and all the trees surrounding it were removed. Huge palm trees and another big tree that have been there since we moved here 13 years ago. There's a lot of building going on right now, and unfortunately, people seem to think bigger is better. They don't care to leave room for green spaces which to me is very, very sad.
I am so grateful that I have two balconies that allow me to surround myself with greenery.
Jingles is very happy, too, as she gets to explore and enjoy the great outdoors.
Thankfully, we still have some trees in our block. Early morning and just before dusk are my favorite times of day for one of my favorite activities ...
The birds are at their liveliest then as it is the best time for them to find food. They are fascinating to watch.
It's also about the only time I actually use my good camera.
Now that the winter months are upon us, it gets dark very early. My body has yet to adjust. The sun sets at 5:00 p.m. and by 7:00 p.m. my brain is telling me it's time to go to bed.
I wish days and weekends lasted a whole lot longer.
Hope you are enjoying yours!
