BUILDING A NATURE FRIENDLY YARD
In my last few posts, I have been writing and sharing photos about subjects from my yard. On this post, I thought it only appropriate to show my yard and tell how it evolved from a weed patch to a xeriscaped, wildlife friendly retreat.
I relocated to Rural Nevada after 25 years in Las Vegas, because I needed the artistic freedom of an open area away from noise and traffic. However, life away from the city required some adaptation. Gone were the established and manicured yards with not a blade of grass out of place.
The yard where I moved was in bad shape, having been neglected for years. It was overgrown with dry weeds, dead trees and tumbleweeds. Before I could ever begin to think about landscaping, I hired a cleaning crew to remove all the dead growth. What was left was an almond tree, four elm trees, and an about ¾ acre of bare ground.
What an exciting and interesting photo-adventure this day has been. I love it when I am drawn to an area and not knowing what to expect I get treated to new experiences.

Photography places me in the moment where I can share that moment in time. It becomes a life story as represented by my interaction with the scene. The happiness and beauty or the sorrow and strife; how I focus leaves a lasting impression that might touch the viewer on a spiritual level.
