As a young adult, I remember thinking that the ideal location to live would be right outside of town. An area with nature, but within minutes of town-life (stores etc.). Well, I ended up marrying my husband, who came with a house (just outside of town). It’s the perfect location. It only takes about ten minutes to get to most of the stores and gas stations. However, it’s set out far enough to have a nature view. We’ve seen deer, a variety of birds, a snake and more. But, so far, the highlight was seeing two turkeys and their herd of babies waddle through our yard.
Above you will see a view from our back window. When our yard ends the trees begin. Here my husband was able to capture a red cardinal hiding out in the branches. I love this picture, it captures the beauty and mystique of the forest.
