After the rain…… counting my blessings

we’re living in an apartment that seems to shrink with every passing year. The bigger the girls get, the bigger their need for a space of their own, and the more I sometimes long for a bigger house.

But then again, whenever I look out of my window I have to pinch myself: is this true? : living in a city in the most populated part of the country, in a hugh apartment building…and yet… this is our backyard…….

Today when the sun came out after a long and rainy Saturday, I went for a walk in our ‘backyard’ and took some random pictures of all the green that was surrounding me. I am particularly in love with the cow parsley that grows in abundance at this time of the year.

No, we won’t move away easily from here… we’ll make do with the lack of space inside for now, and try to venture out as often as we can.
