The neighbors are up to some cool stuff. Even the trees are working with the changes.
Pic above: One of the neighbors put in a new walk way with brick and small rocks. I think it's really cool. I've been watching him work really hard - and I think his hard work paid off.
Pic below: This cool tree. I would walk under this tree - it was full of leaves and cascaded down - bees would hum in there. And then they buzzed it. And let me tell you I was so sad. I was sad for the bees - where did they get to go? I was sad for the tree. But I look at it now - standing a bit naked - and I admire it's winding trunk. I'm sure with time - it will grow back.
Pic below below: A neighbor painted an accent wall. And chose this fabulous vibrant orange. I love looking at it!
