I grew up in Newport News, Virginia in this house that my Mom still lives in. With my parents, 6 kids, and other various relatives staying at one time or another it was crowded but somehow we managed.
Mom didn't want me to post this picture of the house because she had the old shrubs next to the house pulled out and will have new ones planted in the spring and right now it looks pretty bare. We also had a large maple tree in the front yard when I was growing up but that one had to be replaced and this tree hasn't grown as large.
A few daffodils are blooming in the backyard. Daffodils will always mean spring to me but I'm sure it won't feel like spring next week when I head back to Minnesota!
