There are several gardens all over the property, such as four veggie gardens, including tomatoes, potatoes, garlic, thyme and other fine herbs. There is also a bed of tobacco. There are many flower gardens and also flower pots in many places like on the terraces, next to the house, garage and around the pool. The house is surrounded by natural stones, forming flower beds.
We also have six lilac trees in different places, three of them among the cedar fence and one next to the master bedroom window. In spring, it covers more than half the window with lilac flowers and allow birds to nest. A lot of birds such as blue jay, chickadee, sparows, wood pecker, small and the big are nesting and prospering all over the property, as our gardens are organic and there are no predators. Our five cats never leave the house.
We have a maple tree, linden, apple and cherry trees in all sizes as well as grape vines.
The place is very quiet, no big traffic on the street in front, but we can hear and see a bit of the train passing a few times a day.
When we are in the second building and looking by the front window we see all the field in front, as far as the horison, some forests, a route and houses in the distance. In somer the farmers ususally grow corn or soya on that field and in winter, it's all white with snow. There is a trail for ATVs, skidoos and one can also walk by foot.
The lush greenhouse in the back yard stands next to the shed and the chicken coop with around 15 chicken, hens and roosters wich are very used to people. We can hold and caress them.
We can provide more pictures on demand.
