Having grown up in the bush in Africa I have always enjoyed have acres of space around me. After travelling, living in cities, when the opportunity came to live in the country on acreage, I grabbed it.
I had a few moves, but for the past 29 years have lived on a leafy outer suburban five acre block. One acre is house, sheds, pool and garden. Another acre has a few fruit trees (for the birds that enjoy all our fruit) and the chook run. The rest is all natural bush, jarrah, marri, hakea, bottlebrushes, grass trees and a hundred other varities of natives.
The joys of living there are numerous -here are a few:
Being able to keep chickens
Having a variety of birds flying around
At night it is always a joy to go out and see all the stars.
This is my first posting and now look forward to receiving any comments.
