One of the best features of our land is the dense stand of trees right behind the property. It’s city land and designated wetlands, so it is full of vegetation. At this time of the year the leaves are thick and I can barely see the properties of the people behind us. It’s isolated, too, since the vegetation is mainly poison ivy and pricker vines, and few people brave walking through there.
Another wonderful feature is the deck. This 20×20 space has really turned into an outdoor room for us in the past few years.
I like to sit on the deck first thing in the morning and drink my coffee. Right now it is still pleasantly cool in the morning. I can hear the birds singing and watch some come to the feeders. Usually the sun is filtering between the trees and shafts of light come dancing through the green.
It’s a beautiful way to connect with nature – and to start the morning.
