I love the long summer days in the Bay Area. The extra daylight makes it easy to enjoy the weather and scenery on afternoon walks around Temescal. The scents are amazing and I'm developing an appreciation for front yard landscaping and local flora. I love the mix of textures in the plants and how they complement the old victorian buildings. The neighborhood is also littered with little delights like the free lending library, feel-good signs, and fellow neighbors ever ready to acknowledge you with a smile.
