Behind Bars

One of the stark differences between here and the Midwest was that all the windows and doors on the first floor have bars. For obvious reasons, we understood that this was probably a good idea. Even though we live only a block or two from the Capitol, it really doesn't matter. One of the hardest things to get used to was looking past the bars on to the beautiful neighborhood and backyard that we live in. After a while, we got used to it. And don't forget that you will need more keys to open and close these additional layers to gain entry and exit.

The patio & garden look a lot better past the bars!

Last year, the tomato vine grew on the bars
