We spent five years looking for this house. We've lived in it nearly 13 years so far (signed the paperwork on it on April 28, 2000, but waited for the former owners' children to finish the school year before we moved into it).
After all these years I'm still amazed by how pretty it looks in the Spring. I always try to take pictures on that magical day when the sky is blue and the trees are all in bloom. These are some pictures from that day.
This also marked the week someone came and ground the last of our willow tree. :( Time to plant something new in it's place.
