Let's go back a bit...to 2020.
That Pandemic! We're all tired of hearing about it but bear with me, I've seen some good come from it. Especially in me personally.
I made it through 2020 pretty much unscathed. I focused on spending as much time as possible outside and I was part of a great cohort, we took such great care of each other.
When 2021 came around though, I was tired. I just wanted to just be...go about my day, no worries. It was around this time that I started to notice the bird life in my back yard. I had lived in this same house for over 20 yrs and had never really paid attention! But it was there and it took a pandemic for me to see it.
This is when I started creating "Out My Back Door".
What started as something to get me through the winter, has now blown up into a full fledged project...one that I have continued with to this day. I've expanded my back yard to include my RV lot where I spend my summers and my new home since moving this past summer.
I have hundreds of images, some of species of birds that I have never seen before!
My plan is to continue (it brings me so much joy!) and eventually make a book with the images...and words.
Not sure if those words will be stories or facts or a mixture of the two but no worries, I have plenty of time to figure that out :)
