After nine really good years in Byrd Park, our household has relocated to Ashland so our kids can run around in a yard instead of in our living room. Life won’t be the same for us, and we’ll forever miss our block of Rosewood Avenue (the best first-time home EVER!). However, the neighborhood will surely […]

Neighbor Paul says: Hi! I just signed the petition “Parker Agelasto: Direct more funding and focus to the maintenance of the Byrd Park area specifically at the three lakes (Fountain, Shields, and Swan Lake).” on Change.org.

The ‘under contract’ preface atop this for sale sign on Rosewood Ave was recently changed to ‘Sold in 1 Day.’ Quick sales are becoming very common in Byrd Park, because it’s a hot neighborhood, real estate-wise.
Over the past few days, the temperatures have given us a preview of fall weather. If you found some time to walk around the lakes then it probably dawned on you that the neighborhoods surrounding Byrd Park are some of the best places to live anywhere in Richmond. Many don’t realize how good we have […]
Here’s the story from WTVR:
On Rowland, near Maplewood.

From a neighbor: We live on Spottswood Rd, and have seen an adult raccoon in our backyard a time or two since moving here in June. Yesterday at about 6pm, my husband opened our trash can to throw something away, and as he tossed it in, he noticed several beady black eyes looking up at […]

From Richmond Tree Stewards: The recent rain was welcome after those hot, dry days but it was not enough to water young trees. Most of Richmond received only 0.25 inches of rain in the last 7 days and that doesn’t get water down to the root ball, so our current watering alert still says that […]
From a neighbor: This cat turned up hungry and lonely (and very friendly!) on the 500 block of South Sheppard (by the little league diamonds). She(?) doesn’t have a collar, but isn’t scared of people at all, so we figure she must belong to someone. If anyone recognizes her please email me at email@example.com. Thanks!
In an effort to shore up water reserves, the Uptown Community Garden on Parkwood has installed this arrangement of rain barrels. For those wondering, this knot of dill-looking fronds is actually asparagus.
It could be the years of carrying the blog on my shoulders making me a little jaded, or maybe the three small children demanding my attention, or the 60hr a week job that has me traveling across eight states, but posting here has slowed to a trickle. Sorry about that. I take loads of pictures […]
