Living outside of town

nature, Photography, wildlife

I recall thinking that one day I wanted to live just outside of town. A place where you could be in nature, but within minutes of stores. Years later I ended up marrying a man who wanted the exact same thing. And, already owned a place that fit the description. How perfect…

One of the things I love most about living here is the constant wildlife. On a regular occasion we see birds, squirrels and groundhogs. We’ve also seen chipmunks, snakes and deer. But one of the coolest sights was when two turkey hens came wobbling through our yard with about a dozen babies. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find any good photos of that on our memory cards. However, I did happen to find these three pictures to share. You’ll see a baby robin on our front porch, a blue jay resting in the backyard and what I believe is a garter snake in the grass.

This lifestyle may not be for everyone. Living outside of town can come with its negatives like not being in walking distance to shops and it also comes with more bugs. However, it does have its perks, such as being closer to nature, having real bonfires in the backyard, less light pollution and seeing various wildlife. It’s the perfect location for a writer/hobbyist photographer.
