If I had a backyard like this, with deer hanging out, and a hot air balloon overhead… I am not sure I would think of it as “just my backyard”! I suspect that I am alone in that. ~WaterGirl
I find my sorta mowed and ungardened backyard very peaceful. It’s shielded by trees and hedges from my next-door neighbors, and there’s no one directly behind me.
This picture was taken during hunting season in December 2008, when I looked out to see 14 deer lounging away from all the Elmer Fudds. We don’t have nearly as many deer now as then because of a sterilization program.
