One of the things I have loved about our apartment in Frankfurt (besides the ease with which we can go downtown or walk to the grocery store or visit several parks), is the huge maple tree in our (small) backyard.
I felt so blessed to have this wonderful green view greet me each spring, summer, and fall morning. Even though we live in a city, I still had a lovely view of a big tree.
Yesterday, I left the house with a big, beautiful maple tree in the backyard. When I returned at noon, there was this:
I'm interested to see how the backyard develops this spring. I am trying to keep an optimistic view on our being able to enjoy the garden this coming season. Well, at least we have our other nature outlets (but none quite so close - just four flights of stairs below us:)
What's your favorite outdoor aspect of your apartment/house? (and I'll try to not be jealous of comments like "our pond" or "the mesa" :) )
