Gardening & Wildlife
  Gardening in our yards or watching the local wildlife provides great enjoyment to the residents of RIVERWIND.  Some yards show particular knowledge and skill as landscapers.  The wildlife is active all year long and quite varied.  Many residents feed the birds and other animals that surround the community.

"How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care,

Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colors gleaming in the sun.
At other times, they wildly fly
Until they nearly reach the sky.

Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.
Exhausted, drop to earth below
To wait, like children, for the snow."
