The Rural Life

Greater Hartford has a lot of residential development in rural areas that had previously been forest or farm land. It’s common to hear stories of wildlife walking through the yards of homeowners. Bear sightings are scary – they are big animals and can do some damage. Other animals are cute or exotic or majestic depending on their size and how rare it is to see them. While driving through the western part of Avon, in the middle of the day, I saw these three deer getting a snack. I’m not sure they liked the music I was playing when I stopped and rolled down my window.
