We have almost 12 acres, half swamp, in a rural setting. I love the trees and the animals. We have a family of deer that live here, new fawns every year! Lots of bunnies, fox, skunk, porcupine, and raccoons. And, of course, birds and squirrels. I love to sit outside and just watch the trees and critters. We had a great garden one year, then the rest not so great, so we gave up on it. However, the rhubarb comes back every year. We have some lilacs that smell wonderful.
