Looking back at the oak walking up a steep grade. Turning back home now we begin to enter the woods.The previous owners actually lived in two places on the property. They started their first home, a trailer, closer to the road and there is evidence of gardens along the way. Periwinkle lines the driveway where the first home was placed. Getting closer to home I can just see a hint of yellow from my gardens through the trees there on the left.The woods are so well canopied that very little seems to grow below them, leaves keep things from filling in, which is nice for walking. There are many oaks but this one in the center is one that caught my eye. It is quite large and looks like it may have been hit by lightning at least once. I'll have to do a more detailed post on this and other old looking trees here. I can't wait to find out more about the trees I have here. I love the bark on this one. It is very tall. Here we are, almost home now...and who is that waiting for me.Ole? Oh yeah, sorry buddy, I couldn't take you along today.
But next time you can go with me, if you promise not to chase squirrels into the woods!
We have unloaded the truck and now have a house full of belongs to find places for. It's going to take some time to get this done.
