I finally got out and took some pictures of our new land on Sunday. We went out there and I mowed a little bit around the pond while the boys fed the fish and looked for frogs, and my husband kept vigil making sure no one grabbed a snake.
I'm standing near the pond, which is toward the bottom of our property and looking up. There are ares of trees and clear areas scattered across the acreage. This is our pond Part of the wooded area near the pond
Anyway, there really isn't any need to keep the entire 4.5 acres mowed, so I am just mowing a nice area in front of the pond so that we can get up close to feed the fish and not have to worry about getting snake bit. I found a really nice big patch of wild black berries on the levy behind the pond. Some of them are starting to get ripe, so you know the boys and I will be out there with a pail to pick those. There are morning glory vines all over the property, wild strawberry vines, and an assortment of weed flowers. I love this piece of land, and I cannot wait to get moved out there. HB and I keep brainstorming to come up with ways to get out there sooner. The boys are very excited to get out there too. And of course, everyone will be invited to the house warming party, just as long as they bring gifts.
