Hi there. I live just outside Philadelphia in an old town that’s historic in its own right and is also a part of the suburbs. Such a maligned place, the suburbs. But I love it here, in large part because—even though the houses are close together and the traffic gets more out of hand every year—nature is exploding all over. I plan to use this blog to share my daily discovery of it: big beautiful horsechestnut trees, windowsill herb gardens, bickering bird parents, ugly-looking possums … and whatever else I come upon. Thank you for reading it.
