One of my favorite things about our new house is the view from the backyard. Our old house had like 50 feet between our back door and the neighbor's door. I might be exaggerating, but it sure felt that way. Our new lot doesn't have anything behind us but open field. I think it's zoned for retail development, so I'm sure it will change. For now, I enjoy looking out the patio door every morning, usually catching a glimpse of a turkey or a pheasant. It just started getting green the past few days, and that instantly puts me in a better mood. I can't wait until our yard has grass instead of mud, which should happen in the next two weeks...if it stays dry.
