"Come along for a walk with me."
To visit the woodlot you first walk past the 150 year old out-house (now decorated for every occasion) that I so fondly wrote about in the past. :-b
Right now it is home to a family of chipmunks. :)
It is hugged by a creepy old vine that is probably as old as the out-house.
I'm very protective of the 'ol vine.
Hundreds of skinny maple trees surround you as you zig zag through the lot.
And you are serenaded by our many different birds that call these trees their home.
Today I saw blue-jays, chickadees, juncos, nut-hatch, sparrows, rose-breasted grosbeak, cardinal and wrens. Many singing...all seem happy.
And it was fun last Easter to design four paths for the chocolate egg hunters.
Which way do we go?
The grandittles had such a fun time.
They find it magical back here...and so do I. :)
And there are piles of branches and tree trunks to cut up for fire-wood this winter.
The old stone wall above was built by my ancestors.
What I'd give to travel back in time to watch that happen.
It is at the back along the old stone wall that our beloved departed cats are laid to rest.
A place that soothes my soul.
And since there are a few hanging boxes full of peanuts in the trees, you will often be accompanied by a resident chipmunk as you walk about.
So that's to show you the bones of the wood-lot.
I look forward to bringing you along for a closer look at life that goes on in there. :)
We've just had company so these two are pooped.
Audrey...really? That face!
Mother's Day was so much fun.
I was spoiled, as usual, with brunch, flowers and chocolates.
It's been cool and rainy,
with the weather in the high +20's
it's time to do more planting. :)
Hydrangea from my daughter.
I hope you had a fun weekend.
