Suburban Utopia  
The neighborhood is quite and the trees and lawn are green.

I just spent an hour under the Mulberry tree reading Stardust. It was so warm and relaxing. When I look up from my book I can see the crescent moon in the afternoon sky. I can see the neighbor's sunflowers towering over the fence. This is suburban bliss.

Our small ranch style house was built in the early 1960s as a "starter home", for a new family. Now-a-days a two income mature family (ours) can barely get into the door of this neighborhood. There is so much work that needs to be done on an old house to make it sound and comfortable.

But, for a warm perfect hour in the backyard it is wonderful.
