I love my back yard. I have it a bit wild and the wildlife loves it and I love to watch them. Yesterday I had the pleasure of seeing (and picking up I must confess) a box turtle as big as a pie plate. I unfortunately didn't get a picture as he was in a hurry to be on his way. It is just so wonderful to be able to watch the squirrels play and the birds fly around and land in my magnolia tree. You could say I am a real nature lover and get allot of inspiration from it.
Another thing I love are all the wild blackberries in my yard. I have been able to get enough for some blackberry jam and to make a blackberry buckle. I even had enough left over for snacking.
