I live in a semi rural area in South Kansas City, Missouri. For many years I lived in midtown Kansas City. I liked the old houses and the variety people that lived there, but moved out of the city so I could have a safer and more relaxing atmosphere for me and my animals. I have always liked nature and nature in the city is pretty limited. One cannot have everything!

Gardening has become a major activity with me. I have planted lots of trees, bushes and flowers. I try to plant as many native plants as possible as they resist drought and predators - mainly deer. I have several bee hives which are extremely fascinating and valuable little creatures.

I like to take pictures of my gardening projects and the nature that does surround me so I will share my pictures with you. My rather idyllic setting has been significantly damaged by the construction of 150 Highway in my back yard a few years ago and I will share with you some of my thoughts about it and some pictures I have taken during and after the construction.
