|This small piece of natural forest has been left untouched for at least the past 100 years, as far back as records go. It quite amazing to be surrounded by wildlife and landscapes, in its untouched and natural state. The diversity of flora and fauna flourishes here, along with the wildlife that dwells within the deciduous forest. As you take a walk in the meadows or the forest, you can see nature working in perfect harmony and see that nature does know best, as everything functions as a whole, every part is just as important as the next.
For us, it's a blessing to be allowed to live so close to nature and all the wonders within. There is no question that we will make our presence here as discrete as possible.
A walk through the meadows. I've witnessed a bobcat chasing his prey, a jackrabbit... but haven't had the camera to verify! LOL
The redtail hawks are almost always nearby. As I'm sitting here writing, I cans see the hawk's shadow brushing across the landscape... it is awesome.
Butterfly Pea, Clitoria ternatea The intricate detail of the flowers is truly amazing to me. It's easy to find beauty in this delicate flower.
As I began to look around, I saw so many plants that I had no name for.... and so my search began! This is a Farkleberry, Huckleberry tree, I have disovered.
I am still finding new plants when I take my walks, and I still must know the names of them!
FAITH over fear!
