My Backyard

My house is in a small, private, Greenacres, Florida community of 60 houses, right in the middle of Palm Beach County. I have been a home owner here since June of 2018. What really attracted me to this place was the 1.3 acre area directly behind my property that is surrounded by my house and 11 of my neighbors on this circular drive. It is a common area for our community, but rarely walked in. There is nothing in the 1.3 acres to attract most people. There isn't a sidewalk, no picnic tables, no benches, just grass and trees. Landscapers mow the lawn, which there is plenty of, but what is really nice is all the different trees. It is obvious that the planner was looking for variety. Since no one has any fences, when I look out at my backyard, I see an extra 160 feet and looking left another 330 feet of "my backyard". I set up my desk and computer to look out back. It is what I like most about living here. Many birds frequent this little area. If I look to the right from my desk I can see part of a lake we have here. A short walk to the opposite corner of the community we have an undeveloped, dense, overgrown area, people here call a preserve, measuring a quarter acre, which I have yet to attempt. It is easy to see something in my backyard and take a picture through the window, or better yet go outside and walk around.

I enjoy your posts and get a little bit of "warmth" in the winter :) (if not deployed south).
Enjoy and spread the joy of INaturalist to others during these home-bound times.
