Recreating a native habitat has been a dream of mine since I was about 18. It only took me 20 years, but I finally have two acres of land in the country with which to work (and play). My goal is to document the improvements I make to the property: restoring habitat & attracting birds and butterflies in addition to other wildlife.
Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

This is Prunus virginiana , choke cherry, I believe. It is growing in a few spots on our property and I'm hoping to spread it in to the hedgerow and future hedgerows.
