Doo doo doo looking out my back door

This was the view looking out my back door just a few years ago. Twenty-two acres known as the Tiffany Park Woods were behind us. Lovely, dark and deep, they were home to deer and other small critters and full of birds that sang… Continue Reading “Doo doo doo looking out my back door”

A Saturday in the Garden

The weather has turned at long last and spring is finally here.   And there’s nothing more I’d rather do on a Saturday then spend such a day in the garden with the boys.  The pretense is gardening and I will do some of… Continue Reading “A Saturday in the Garden”

Dream House at Tiffany Park

There once was a forest in Tiffany Park.  The trees were worn and tangled yet full of life; native plants and mosses provided splashes of color. Deer and raccoon, owls and woodpeckers, all called it home. Dogs and their walkers visited daily and there… Continue Reading “Dream House at Tiffany Park”

The Last Tree

After the razing of the 22 acres formerly known as the Tiffany Park Woods, it was time to take out the last tree near our home.  No hard feelings.  In fact,  I’m over it.  For the last several months I’ve actually enjoyed following the… Continue Reading “The Last Tree”

The Gone Tiffany Park Woods

I must say that was fast. Not only have the trees and shrubs come down in what was formerly known as the Tiffany Park Woods, but the area has been pulverized into submission (and yes, dirt) with not a single green thing left, except for… Continue Reading “The Gone Tiffany Park Woods”

A Halt to the Work at the Tiffany Park Woods

Too little too late.  The beautiful Tiffany Park Woods are nearly gone, the birds and wildlife already evicted, the native flora disappeared. Still, I was heartened to know someone is paying attention to the promises made by the developer when they obtained the permit to… Continue Reading “A Halt to the Work at the Tiffany Park Woods”

The Woodpecker

Today they arrived behind our house and I stood watching as the claw gripped the tree where it was thick and full of life and the saw ate through its girth and the claw hoisted it upward into the air and downward where it smashed to the ground… Continue Reading “The Woodpecker”
