The wild side!


This is what I call “the wild side” of my backyard. I built a bird bath out of spare bricks and a large plastic saucer and added another saucer on the ground for the other wild critters. The wild grape vine drapes into the entrance of series of walking trails that I cut through the forest:

This photo is looking down the trail about 20 feet from the entrance:

As we go a little farther, the trail opens up into a beautiful field of wild sapplings:

Just six months ago this huge area was filled with huge cedar trees and was cut down and shredded by the city. It is amazing how quickly mother nature has bounced back! What the city did not know is that shredded cedar is one of the best mulches in the world! {chuckle} Just look at all of the plants growing like crazy:

All of the new saplings have grown an average of 6 to 7 feet in only 6 months.
Note the shredded cedar all over the ground.. Gotta love it!

Doon, its' next door to our property and some day there will be a new neighbor's home there, so I just enjoy the wild area for now. The birds and other wildlife that live in this area are pretty cool to watch. Nothing is better than taking a stroll down the trails in the morning with a cup of coffee and soaking up all of the morning critters! Rabbits, birds, squirrels, raccoons, hawks, owls, it's awesome to watch!
I just hope that this area never goes away due to development. It's a pretty amazing place where "Mother Nature" really "shows off"!
