This is probably my favorite time of the year. After a long and brutal winter (whatever happened to those mild Delaware winters?), new growth is sprouting up all around us. We are so fortunate to live in the neighborhood where we live now. Great neighbors, convenient to everything and quiet. Oh how I like the quiet. Bill does too.
This clump of trees behind me in this video I planted four years ago. They are river birch trees. When I used to take my daily constitutional walk in the development behind our, I always admired one house who had this trio of river birch trees. The trees are not only beautiful to look at but I love hearing the gentle rustle of the leaves as the wind blows through them.
In this day of so much violence and turmoil, the one thing I value above all others (in addition to good health) is peace and quiet. We have it hear folks. And I am so appreciative.
