    Well done!!! Yes let’s enjoy our own backyard! My family and I have made many a visit to our community park! Back in the planning stages my daughter Britni and I attended the meetings to voice our thoughts and ideas about what should be included in the expansion. We were advocating a dog park, since at the time my daughter lived right downtown and had two furry companions that she walked everywhere but alas, no place for them to romp and play! We were thrilled that it came to fruition even though she doesn’t live in town anymore! We are blessed to be in this community!

    Our “backyard” consists of our you pick blueberry farm, which you know well! And I am glad you visit it! With opening day around the corner we are busy getting ready to make new friends too!

      How cool that you had a say in the planning of our park, Cheryl! I rarely see dogs at our dog park, but I do love that we have one. And yes, I will be coming to your backyard soon. Can’t be here in Calhoun and not come pick your blueberries! Sweet Velo Blue, here I come!

    What a wonderful story. I always loved walking around my neighborhood. Plus I loved my own backyard with all my flowers ,and my veggie garden just waiting for the picking to can my tomatoes and jalapenos to make my Salsa and can peaches and pears I do miss those days, only thing Joy I had so much, I’d ship to our girls and still had so much Darrell would hand out to our friend at his job and I made sure all my neighbors got their fair share all I would ask that they return my jars for next years pickings it could get very pricy . I’d tell them no jars nothing for you my friend for next year, boy they made sure I’d get them back lol Joy I really do enjoy reading your blogs when I get my moments my Dear friend. Hope your traveling and enjoying yourself !!!!!!

    Your friend Mia

      Thanks for sharing, Mia! Making salsa is time consuming! I hope your friends and family appreciated the love that went into every jar. Bet you miss having your garden.

    When we see the place that we call “home” getting better it brings joy to the heart.
