I love my new home, and yard, and yes, there are critters here.
But I miss terribly my office window, back in my Missouri woods. Back where I had all day interaction with wildlife in a secluded lake neighborhood, miles from town, nestled in the woods.
This was my daily window.
My view was a constant cascade of everything nature. Squirrels, birds in wide variety, bugs, raccoons, opossums, snakes, mice, voles, and the list could continue for awhile.
I never knew what I might wake up to in my window, and it was amazing.
All of this, out of my office or bedroom window, everyday, without fail. Trust me, if the feeders were empty I had visitors waiting for me on the stoop.
I miss that so much. I miss that view and the connection with the animals. Living in town, albeit on the edge, I just don’t have the habitat to attract this kind of attention from wildlife. Not in my office window; not yet.
I am out to change that. Contact me if you have any ideas on how to start building a beautiful habitat in the empty front corner of my yard.
