Our 23+ acres is largely wooded
or in some stage of growing back into woods.
The older woods are a dense jungle of brambles, vines, ticks and poison ivy
so walking it isn't an option.
We've begun to cut our trails/paths!
So far we head down to the woods from the house
to the spring where Mr. Biggs is buried.
The stone cairn is where the worlds greatest Jack Russell terrier lies...
we still miss him every day.
The trail follows a deer path for a while
between the cedars at the edge of our woods.
It's not wide enough for the tractor or even the riding mower....
just a footpath.
We've almost made a loop around behind the house
which is our goal for the summer.
There's a LOT more to explore since we're not even halfway into our woods.
We're working with all hand tools.... weedeater, brush blade, loppers
and Joe's the king of the chainsaw.
A chainsaw is one of the tools that I've never handled and have no plans to start learning!
We're enjoying working together
and I'm lucky that he's willing to help make my wild hare idea
of having walking trails become reality.
So I probably shouldn't post this photo of him but I can't resist.
I'm married to yard art!!!
