This time of year especially I love where we live. Our house sticks out kind of on a point into the Elizabeth River. There are lots of birds and animals to see, racoons too- they have actually figured out how to open the large trash cans outside to help themselves to some snacks every night :) I went out last monday and bought some nice flowers to plant in my planters. I also found some great hanging baskets for $12 each... my fav is this big one I put to enjoy by my kitchen window. I love having flowers all around.
