The neighborhood is looking kind of bare, since the trees don't have leaves right now, but it's still a pretty neighborhood, and I like it.
We got new trash containers last week, for the first time. It's kind of nice for everyone to have the same ones, and they're nice, stury ones. The down side, of course, is that all of your trash has to fit into the container or they charge you extra. It looks like most of us got the same size (there were three). I still need to mark ours with our name, but hopefully no one will steal it, like they did with our recycling bin a few years ago.
