STROLL THROUGH OUR NEIGHBORHOOD

ALMOST EVERY SATURDAY AND SUNDAY MOM GIVES ME A HEAD SCRATCH THEN HEADS OUT FOR A WALK IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD
 ALONG THE WAY SHE SEES LOTS OF INTERESTING SIGHTS


HOT PINK CHAIRS FRESHLY PAINTED FOR SPRING

FLAGS FLYING HIGH

OUR FRONT DOOR


I BET IT IS HARD TO DUNK THE BALL IN THE BASKET

REFLECTIONS OF GRAY ON LEADMINE LAKE
  
MOM LOVES TO VISIT LEADMINE LAKE AT DIFFERENT TIMES TO SEE THE REFLECTIONS


MOL THIS IS MOM WITH THE LONG LEGS SHE WISHED SHE HAD


JAPANESE MAPLE IN OUR FRONT YARD JUST BEFORE ALL THE LEAVES FELL OFF

GORGEOUS MAPLE A FEW BLOCKS FROM HOME

SUNSET AS MOM HEADS UP THE HILL TOWARDS HOME

  4. Your neighborhood is beautiful, it also looks nice and quiet. It must be nice to have the lake within walking distance, love that reflection. Those two maple trees are gorgeous.

    Looks like your weather has improved and spring is just around the corner. We had snow last night and this morning but it melted quickly.

  6. Madi, you have a beautiful neighborhood in Raleigh!
    So many trees in different colors, depending on the time of year and I love the reflection in the lake!
    I know how Mom feels, it's the only time we "vertically challenged" people can be tall! :)
    Thank you for sharing some wonderful pics!
    Chin scratches to you

  12. Your neighborhood looks very nice, Madi. My papa loves Japanese Maples. We are hoping to move out of the city in the next 6 months and once we have a yard, I think one of the first things we will buy is a Japanese Maple!

    Your pal, Pip

  14. Oh, you live in a beautiful neighborhood, Madi. I bet it's fun to sit in the window and watch what's going on. And, imagine having a lake close enough that you can walk to it from your house. Your Mom must really like that!

    I enjoyed that walk, Madi's Mom. Thanks for taking us along.

    We loved the japanese maple and Mom wishes she could have one like that. She tried but our yard and area is just not conclusive to those trees.
