May Photo Challenge: Street

This is my favorite street to drive up in the spring.  It's near me, so I do it almost daily.  So pretty with the maples coming in purple.

And this is my street.  We didn't choose this house, we chose this lot.  A third of an acre on the back of a cul-de-sac.  We back up to a couple acres of city park.  There are things I'd change about my house, but I wouldn't change this lot.  Or my neighbors.  But I wouldn't be mad if someone moved in with a seven-year-old boy for Matthew to play with...

I get that. In NM, we chose our backyard. And I never regretted that. Turns out I was right insisting on a fenced in, SHADED yard for the long, hot summers. We breezed past a nicer house with a yard that didn't have a single tree. Guess what? I loved the house we bought, anyway.

Love the streets.
