That's a fenceline.
There's a pasture behind there.
I cut and I cut and I cut.
That's what some of the grapevine trunks looked like.
Those are grapevines! Whew.
You can see the pasture again!
That's the brush pile way down there.
These are mushrooms growing on a dead tree. I'm going to take a better picture of this tree tomorrow.
I worked on the pasture side of the fence, too. This tiny beautiful little red plant
is a young Virginia Creeper vine.
Several of these guys were on the house porch (wooly bears).
I stopped to take this picture on the way home... got out of the car.... The trees are getting so beautiful. This pond is so peaceful.
This barn sits above the pond.
This farm is right across the road from the pond. There are several barns and a granary.
But the house is gone... it clearly was in that copse of trees... and the pasture had
peacefully grazing cows in it. There was an additional barn, I didn't get it in the pcitre... it is behind the trees, and would have been behind and a little to the west of the house.
On the way home, I went by my friend Diane's to give her a sack of egg cartons I had found in a storage building at the old house. This made me laugh out loud. It's a BIG Angus bull.
He is standing in between the supports of a sign that says "New Haven Angus", large
cattle breeders here in Leavenworth County.
There was a truck behind me and I couldn't stop (see him in the side mirror?)
Here is what's really funny... he turned around pointing NORTH in the time it took me to deliver the cartons and chat for a minute... so he was facing me again as I came down the road. This time, I pulled into a driveway, and calmly took the picture as I got the stink eye. Now you can read the sign that says "New Haven Angus".
He's pretty photogenic.
Jester likes his daddy a lot.
Keith is going back into the hospital either today, tomorrow or Monday, he is finding out now.
This is getting to be part of our lives.
Please remember him in your prayers if you think of him this weekend.
And these guys live about a mile from us, right down the road. How I always would
have loved to have had some alpacas. Maybe in my next life.
And now I'm going out to cut grass for the last time this year. (I
