Garden fan

Neighbor Sabrina stopped by a couple days ago to enjoy the pretty flowers and foliage in the front yard at CadMur Manor. Like most of the kids in Mill Creek, she's also a big fan of Sheba and Siegfried From KAOS.

Born to run

Having green space nearby adds a great deal to one's quality of life. At Mill Creek, a large, open lawn area makes for a nice place to exercise our Jack Russell terriers, Sheba, in the foreground, and Siegfried from KAOS. Sophie and I were taking turns calling the half-siblings, who ran back and forth countless times.

Mill Creek has two other green spaces within the development and miles of trails in the adjacent Garfield Reservation of the Cleveland Metropark. Many homes, including CadMur Manor, abut the park.
