Sylvan Springs Local Customs
Like everywhere I've ever been, gardeners love to share what they grow when they have plenty. I grew lots of tomatoes & summer squash and would share with a friend who had no garden space. And I find it's like this most everywhere I've been when someone is lucky enough to have space for a garden. Bill even likes to share in the "weed picking" ... it's like theropy he says.
Ha, I've picked plenty of weeds.
Having a garden is what I miss more than anything since we've been renting. Hopefully, that will change someday soon.Related to:

Don't worry, this guy was caught in a LIVE trap, as you see, and he was released miles from here to start a new life!
Unique Suggestions: Relax and eat the treat (and the bowl it's in) while you're waiting to be found in the morning.

It's a small town community. Laid back, quiet and a good place to raise a family just outside of Birmingham.
Sylvan Springs Favorites
Favorite thing: Those wonderful Southern meals are at the top of the list along with good conversation with terrific people. First time we all met (other than Ruth & I online) and it was like we've known each other for years.
Fondest memory: The roses, home cook southern meals, sitting with our feet up on the porch, trying to catch a picture of the birds at the feeders (which I never did get), and making new good friends that I hope will last a lifetime!
