These are the boulders and a walking trail behind my house. Also, a side view of my house taken from the woods.

Thanks! Too bad it's still winter and not green and lush...............soon.

As you can guess there is a LOT of leaf clean-up every season. If you noticed, the area around the boulders has a lot of dead leaves. My husband and son clean these all out. I have lots of ferns planted around each boulder. The soil in this area is different than any other soil anywhere around my home. It's a thick, rich sandy loam. Anything grows beautifully here but the backyard is mostly shaded.

Those empty pots get filled with exotic annuals once the first frost comes. It's usually safe to plant tropicals about the first week in June.

Maybe you also noticed, we have absolutely no areas of grass. Several years ago we had our local landscaping supply company deliver several tons of riverbed rock. Of course, this took years to accomplish. However, with the fall season, the riverbed rock becomes full of falling leaves which then need to be cleaned up.

Now that being said, you can see why we have coyotes, black bear sightings, (twice) groundhounds, skunks, deer, turkeys, vultures, possums, rabbits, four species of squirrels, raccoons and 38 bird species.

I can't believe it...............this is actually letting me post a reply. Every time I log into Amici it tells me to Register. If you don't hear from me you'll know I'm still having trouble getting things to post.
