Some recollections of the current owner...

- 100+ species birds identified from bald and golden eagles to hummingbirds....

- In the yard we have had deer, grouse, pheasant, owls and hawks, great blue heron, cranes and so many songbirds it is impossible to number: redstarts, grosbeaks (pine, evening, rose breasted), various warblers and finches, cedar waxwings, Baltimore and Orchard orioles, blue jays; red-winged and yellow-headed blackbirds, mockingbirds; whip-poor-wills; downy, hairy, red-headed and Pileated woodpeckers; flickers; catbirds; robins; brown thrashers, various sparrows, chickadees and nuthatches, ....

- Naturalized perennials including hostas, ferns, day lilies, hyacinths, lily-of-the-valley, snow-on-the-mountain

- Bush is incredible with lady slippers, wild strawberries, saskatoons, dogwood, wild roses, high bush cranberries, hickory nuts, raspberries

- Trees include oak, black and white poplar, willow and birch, Colorado spruce, "local" spruce (the giant ones- not sure what variety) white pine and jack pine, caraghana, lilacs, dogwood, Manitoba maple, buffalo berry, and of course all the fruit trees

- Yard includes grapes, Nanking cherries, sweet cherries, gooseberries, pears, apricots, crab apples, red and green fall apples, rhubarb.... You could eat your way through the entire summer and early autumn!

- There are several fire pit areas on the property which we used extensively when kids were little. Where we sat depended on weather and wind direction. During milder years we sat around fires virtually 52 weeks a year... cooking and camping in our own private oasis. Halloween and Christmas, we ran strings of lights through the bush and lit up the trails west of the house. It was always beautiful and peaceful.

- One of the neatest things was one Christmas when kids were really young, we built a huge kidney-shaped skating rink in the sheltered area just east of the main yard (just past the big tree lilacs- used to be a garden). We moved the park benches alongside, put in a big fire pit, and the kids skated all winter long. It was magical "winter park"- warm, sheltered and absolutely beautiful- what a way to pass the winter months!

- The thing that has always impressed me the most with this property is how truly peaceful and secluded it is, though just minutes from town and all conveniences. It is as though, when you pull into the driveway, the rest of the world just goes away and you are in your own safe haven. During the summer when trees are full, you are not even aware of traffic going by on the gravel road, and the sounds of the breeze through the trees will convince you that you are listening to waves on the beach. The greatest noise you ever contend with is the singing of birds and the frogs in the spring.

- Our kids were born and raised there and it proved to be the safest, most comfortable place to raise children... it has always been their haven as well. No matter where they went or what they did, "going home" always meant back to Teulon.
