Little info about the backyard with a picture or two
This is what I work for.
I have 3 acres of backyard along the Meramec River across from Arnold Missouri.
Spring time can bring flooding which prevents doing much with the yard other then mowing and enjoying the view. When I purchased the house in 1994 the backyard had water over 20 feet deep in it. The summer picture was taken by my father in the fall of 1994, just a few months after I purchased my house. The winter picture was taken in December of 1998 from my bedroom window.
We have seen deer, turkeys, geese, coyote, and other wild animals. There was even a beaver swimming through it one time.
