We are blessed in that we can see both the sunrise and sunset from our patio and driveway!
Our house sets so that we face North and South –
So the sun rises from the right as you stand on the front porch – and sets to the left as you stand there.
We knew when we selected this lot – that this is what we would have as we stood in the road
before we put our down payment on the lot at 2:30 in the afternoon.
With the tree line in the back is protected and not cut down – this made shade for the back yard-
while the front porch all day long would have shade.
That is what I wanted most – a place to sit and talk to people as they walked by.
The day we visited the model – this lot became available after someone withdrew their downpayment.
It was just meant to be as we had no idea what this development looked like –
and we had just been to visit a condo some 4 miles away.
Five minutes into the tour of the model – Sherry was sold!

We selected this lot because of the wooded area and these woods will not be cleared out!
So – we have tried to go natural – planting Oleanders – and flowers that come back each year.
Bird feeder – and more plants to be added as we see how it goes.
We have been buying small bags of wood at various stores – plus picking up dead tree limbs.
Now – we tried burning pine combs – of which there is an abundance all around the community.
We generally start the fire in the early evening – still light out.
By 8:00 pm. we are done and I let it just burn out with the red coals.
We have not seen anything in the woods other than a squirrel.
But I have been told to watch out for snakes!
We do have Copperheads in the area – and down the road, by the pond, we saw a large Black Snake!
I am ever watchful – always looking around – wild turkey and deer are also around.
Our lawn is not large – normal size – and we did not want a large lawn to take care of!
Being we both are retired – and we sold all our lawn equipment – I have the lawn mowed every two weeks!
I have also had the landscaping done – and in the Spring will have fresh mulch!
