I actually live in the County of Fairfax, but Fairfax City is an independent jurisdiction within that area. Fairfax is a suburb of Washington, DC, located in Northern Virginia just west of the city.
I don't have many tips or pictures for the area yet, but perhaps that will change as time goes by. Meanwhile, this photo shows part of the perennial garden I inherited when we bought this house earlier this year (2003). The yard is bordered on one side by a wooded area that is part of the utility right-of-way. The combination of the trees and the garden attracts a range of wildlife including both songbirds and raptors, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, skinks, and the neighbor's cat.
- Pros:Home, Sweet Home; Close to DC
- Cons:Did I mention the traffic yet?!
- In a nutshell:Suburban Heaven (or Hell) . . . depending on your point of view.
