This is what I like to call our backyard. We live on the bottom floor of a three story apartment complex, so we don't technically have a yard of our own. But our apartment is backed right up against the green belt, so at least we don't have the concrete jungle to stare at out our windows. It is frequently overcast here, which isn't too horrible in and of itself... The rain isn't half bad either; it's more misty than pouring. As long as the sun makes an appearance every few days, or if I can catch a quick glimpse of the blue sky every now and then, I'm good. Not so good: our apartment is dark, even with all the lights turned on and all the shades drawn. It gets a little suffocating at times, and so I tend to daydream about being surrounded by acres and acres of open land. The sky is oppressive enough, but being surrounded by trees and then living in what's essentially a basement... It gets a little depressing at times. And now that Fall has come and gone, all the pretty trees are naked and all that's left is gray and green. Gray sky and gray bark coupled with green grass, green pines, and green moss. It's all foreign to me.
Autumn was beautiful, with all the different colored leaves. But I hear Spring is even better. I can't wait! *B
