Out and About Loving Annapolis
Having been born in Annapolis and raised in a waterfront community just outside the city limits I grew up where visits were of the human kind. As years passed and I moved a few times around the Annapolis area the most I ever found as a non normal visitor was a dog or cat or two. And then 10 years ago I moved to Davidsonville. A beautiful area 20 minutes from Annapolis where the land meets the sky, where acres of soy beans and wheat are grown, where horses dot the landscape along with cows and sheep and where homes are nestled on acres instead of square feet.
The visitors here have been quite interesting and seem to change with the seasons or the years. My first year visitors were peacocks. Seems there is a peacock farm behind me and during mating season they wander a bit further than normal. Beautiful birds I must say. Then there was the sheep dog and little lamb who would cross the creek from another farm who would stop by. I remember that first day they visited and I frantically searched for their owners. What a crazy day that was. I found out that the lamb followed the sheep dog everywhere thinking it was its mother. Too cute.
Then there was the day 2 horses escaped from their pasture and ended up in my yard all skittish and hot and lost. Once again I searched for their owners and then helped herd them in the direction of home.
I have walked into my home with a bull frog following me and then had to chase him down and put him back outside. The bats and the barn swallows who made nests under my eaves and in my garage and yes a snake or two. Of course I can't leave out the ducks, geese, deer, rabbits, butterflies, hummingbirds, and moths who are regular visitors depending on the time of the year.
This year has brought lizards that have somehow found their way into my home. I do believe the cats are doing that. And I can't forget Brownie, the dog from the other side of the pond who visits me regularly and then refuses to go home.
Yes, living in Davidsonville has brought more unusual visitors than I have ever had anywhere else. And you know what.... I wouldn't have it any other way.
If you would like to experience the beauty and the visitors that come with a Davidsonville address give me a call. 410-440-7839. I would be happy to introduce you to all the wonders of the area.
