Neighbors? I've posted many pictures of the house, but not the surroundings. Here's the yard and the road in front of the property. (In Coral springs our neighbors were 15 feet away.)
It gets plenty hot and humid on the Upper Cumberland Plateau—not as hot and humid as South Florida however. The difference is that here it warms later in the day, leaving the mornings cooler so we're free to work outside and not fry. Then as it dinnertime approaches, the world cools again, making walks enjoyable--unless you listen to the sounds coming from the woods. (I've been advised by my Tennessee writing group that I live in the WOODS, not in a forest. More on that topic in OMG #6.)
Now, in mid-September, the difference is more pronounced, even though, I'm told, we're in the middle of an unseasonably warm fall. I'm hoping traditional fall temperatures will be upon us soon.
My plan is for OMG #5 to be about making friends.
