to my Grandmother's House.
I do live out in the woods of
I love living out in the woods. I get to
have the peace and quiet along with some very
special animals that come along to visit me. In
the Spring time which I just love the new
beginning of the flowers and trees. I have
several Dogwood trees all in white. My Azalea
bush is now starting to really put on the show
with its love pinkest red flower. I planted
several rose bushes but they don't do well here.
I really don't have a green thumb, in fact I
killed Monkey Grass. No one can understand how I
did that, neither do I ;-). I really miss the
Lilacs we had in Nebraska, they don't grow
The animals I have here are typical for
Alabama. I have seen Armadillo, Opossum and
Raccoons. The rabbits! There is a large rabbit!
This has to be as big as 4 or more cottontail
rabbits! I have heard they are called
Swamp Rabbits. I don't know if that is for real
or something like a Jackalope! I have 3 that
come in to my yard, one large one that has the
most white on it from the chin under the stomach
to the tail, a smaller one with almost as much
white and a smaller one with hardly any white on
it. I talk to them and the closest they have
come to me is about 6 feet. They don't pay any
attention to my dog Missy a terrier mix. They
will tease her pretend they are heading to her
and stop before the length of her chain can
I have birds galore here, several cardinals,
finches, a woodpecker, and in the Spring a
lovely bluebird. It is so lovely, I have found
out it is called Indigo Bunting. I have also
seen a White-Breasted Nuthatch. Hummingbirds are
numerous here also. I have also the
Yellowhammer, the state bird of Alabama.
last week I seen a Black Racer snake
in my yard. The first one I have
seen in my yard since moving down
here 6 years ago. I am
sure it and other snakes are around since I am
surrounded by woods, just never seen one in the
At first I wanted flowers around my mobile
home but have since found out snakes like that
to hide in..
So I haven't kept up the plantings around it. I
live on one acre of land surrounded by at least
4 acres of woods.
