After we arrived yesterday, and unpacked, it was so great outside so we decided to take the dogs out on a nice walk through the woods and see how spring was looking on the land. First observation is that the forest is very dry. It is a dry spring so far. Also we have at least one black fly that lived through the winter.
The pathway grew in quite a bit with the prickly bush, so we have to do a little more clearing this year so that we can walk through with the dogs. Their little faces are just the right height to be scratched and their leashes get annoyingly wound up in the branches.
Also a lot of rocks fell at the fence line for the dog’s garden so these had to be put back up to keep them safely in and other critters safely out.
The stone cairns in the back of the land are still there and looking great. No trees lost, that I can see, but still a few to clear from last year when the storm brought a tornado close to us.
We cleared a path through this morning and will bring the dogs out this afternoon to check it out. Hopefully it goes a little better this time.
My husband put the rocks back up along the dog’s garden.
It was cold too but with the small camp heater we got cozy and slept long and well.
Now we start the real work!
