We almost never walk the property behind the dog fence. It is very difficult to get to, first of all, and we really do not have a need. Well, each spring we have the need. When we bought the property, a hoarder had lived on it in a tiny single wide trailer that had been condemned and removed. We twice paid people to walk the property and remove junk, but it is a never issue. Brando once brought us drinking glass. Well, each winter it seems the ground spits up more junk. Also the wind brings things to the area, and the dogs sneak things out of the house. Remember the blue underwear? So what did we pick up this time, inside and outside the fenced area? Tupperware, Mason jars, computer parts, pipe fittings, a speaker…yes, a speaker, and lots of paper and plastic. Oh, I also found a pick ax like this one:
This is the view of the house from just behind the fence line. The dogs have a pretty good sized area. The house looks so big from the back, but that is a dormer on the second floor, which means it is only in the back.
Lots and lots of moss. I want to do a moss garden in a jar….oh my, another craft!!! I did not know we had so much of it. It is really beautiful.
Another view of the house from the back.
Great rotten part of a tree. Looks like something’s little home.
This color of blue is called Carolina Blue. The sky often looks like this.
More moss. This is the time of year to walk back there, because the briers are just coming up. In a month it will horrible because of them. You have to walk with a cutter of some kind, just to get through. The ticks should be coming out soon too. I am glad we went when we did.
I have family coming this weekend: My sister Diane, my niece Olivia, and my brother in law Stuart. Looking forward to it.
Hope spring is coming around for all of you. I know Jan still has a mound of snow in her driveway, and they are betting on how long it will be there. Such an amazingly hard winter we all had.
