Naturalization of my Property

Spring 2004

(Page 1 of 2)

Back Yard

Well, here we are in late spring of 2004 (near the end of May).

I gave up on the pond I started in 2002 - decided it was going to be too much work and too fussy. Other than that, I haven't done very much with the yard since the summer of 2002. We have had a wet spring, which is welcomed due to several dry years. So things are growing well.

  

The field/prairie area is growing up nicely.

This spring we have had a lot of bird species coming through, including several never before observed here.

 

Another view of the field/prairie area.

And here is a view of the east side.
 

Here is a panoramic view of the whole backyard, in late May 2004. 
This is the view from our living room window!

Front Yard

Here's a couple of views of the front yard in late May 2004

 

There's a low hedge of grey dogwood along the edge of the porch.

Ash tree to the right; Narrow-leaved Meadowsweet is the green shrub in the middle. It naturally grows in wet areas, but will grow if planted in drier areas.
