Here is a picture of Summy digging herself out of our driveway in Winter after a snowstorm.And here she is in Spring, picking out what we grown-ups called weeds.
Here it's Summer, and she's mixed up with the roses.
And here she is in the Fall.
We'll miss all the surprises we see here - the deer that crossed the street, the turkeys that visit occasionally, the baby turtles that take a shortcut across the grass in Spring, even the coyote that we could hear howling last year, and the fox that scurried through the snow in the backyard while we watched amazed. Not to mention the birds, rabbits, and squirrels, all of whose adorable babies frolic in the backyard.
Last Sunday, two weeks before we are to leave, another surprise floated right over our house and toward the horizon.
We will miss our home and all that comes with it, and look forward to the new surprises that a new home will bring.
