This is my view from my back door. I love it - no backyard neighbors, just a wooded area, so private.
I love it so much, mostly because growing up my Grandma's backyard opened up to a some woods and I remember spending hours and hours playing back there.
Socks likes looking out the back door so much it's become his favorite napping place.
There's our side back yard. I love our trees! So far I know we have:
Dogwood Trees - we have at least 10 and they are so pretty in the spring
Tulip Poplar - pretty spring blossoms and pretty yellow leaves in the fall
Black Gum (the black gum are the bare trees you see - it got too hot for them this year and they dropped all their leaves early)
Red Bud (red blossoms in Spring)
Magnolia (huge pretty white blossoms)
We're going to plant River Birch and Autumn Blaze pretty soon too.
All of these big nice trees bring lots of birds and I love hearing them in the morning. We especially have lots of mocking birds.
Here's is the view from the Master - it's looking out to our side yard, my garden area.
I can't wait to dig into it next spring!
I wish I could get pictures that help you feel how peaceful the yard is. And even though it's really private we're still only 5 mins away from the grocery store and Bojangles (I hate to admit that a fast food place has good food, normally I can't stand the stuff, but they have great biscuits - it's a good thing I don't go very often, but if you some to visit I'll be sure to take you! You have to, for the name alone :)
