My neighbourhood is so quiet. When we moved here from the city, it took a bit to get used to. We have so many birds in the backyard and in the spring it’s like a symphony. It’s quite amazing to hear all the different species. We also have a woodpecker that pops by all the time. It’s a very distinct sound.

For smells, we live about 10 blocks from a cookie factory. The smell travels and, as you can imagine, it’s pretty awesome. In the summer when we leave the door open to the greenhouse, you can also smell the mint.
