Our 1½ acre yard has several perennial flower gardens that attract butterflies, bees and humming birds. The highlight is the 50’x100’ plus wildflower garden with native wetland plants started with seed in 2009. In the center of it all is a 25’ Bald-Cypress Tree. We have several nesting bird boxes that host Blue Birds, Tree Swallows and Wrens. Throughout the year we get Baltimore and Orchard Orioles, Cedar Waxwings, Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks, White-Breasted Nuthatches, Northern Cardinals, and Finches. Off the backyard deck is a 11’x17’ Zero Edge pond and a 10’ stream with water plant bog filtration. The pond is home to a floating island, 9 Koi and a variety of goldfish.
