None of these spaces had windows, since they were located in basements, or next to support pillars, or in the middle of buildings which had been added onto, and buried.
So...to say that I am THRILLED to look out on grapevines, and flowers, and birds building nests is an understatement! Here's what I got to enjoy this spring...
Because I have this GREAT green space...just outside my window, I decided to join the "courtyard gardening committee". My friends Betty and Sue (a teacher at my school, and a retired teacher at my school) are the other members of the committee, and we work to keep things looking good, and make sure everything is in working order/watered/weeded/cleaned up.
It's a lot of work, but TOTALLY worth the effort, because, I believe, we truly have the most beautiful courtyard in the district!
Here's a photo of Betty and me getting ready to "muck out" the pond...good times...!!!!
And....here's the pond!
I LOVE looking out on this little slice of nature in the middle of Hopkins, and am HAPPY to help keep it looking good!!!
Here's hoping YOU have a "little slice of nature" near you that makes you happy too!!!
