Did I mention how much I love our new land !
Lol well I'm not likely to stop !
It has been sometime since I posted about it or photos so here are a ton of pics
We had a a gathering yesterday to show people the land and it turned out to be an awesomely good time .
Perfect Autumn weather in the low 20c's
so below are some of the pics from over the last few months .
No building plans yet as we just can't financially do it yet but at least we have a wonderful property to visit and we do get an idea where and what we'd like to build .
dh of course wants a barn for horses , donkey etc. tractor , truck and more .I am dreaming of a stone /log house , greenhouse and lovely gardens and orchard .
This is one of the two driveways leading into the property it is about 1/2mile from the spot we'd like to build .
such a variety of trees this is a birch which is so big I could only get a pic of each part
did I mention the land has a ton of oak ! not the scrub oak either which is very common in our province .No glorious grand oaks .
pasture which has fireweed , many grasses & hawthorn & oak of course
wiseowl ds15 has been having a blast locating all the different types of mushroom
we've one grand oak on the property near the field dh says it is probably over 200 yrs. because it is twice the size of some which are 100 yrs.
wiseowl loves trees and he seems to like perching in this oak
I have been harvesting rosehips off the property and so far have dried them for tea and made a syrup for drinks or pancakes ☺
Bob is enjoying clearing up the field
wiseowl & Bob have been cutting the patches of poison ivy and spots where we want garden and build our home
we had our get together and this trailer dh bought has come in so handy
we lit a fire right away
set up the goodies
I did manage to get adventure boy out of the van
the scenery around the pit is just gorgeous this time of yr. and often we see different waterfowl land on it .
Bob & jack
the kids all had such fun
my Mum came out and proceeded to plant things
did I mention it is beautiful ?
and the colours !
poplar, birch , oak
drive in to the field
Bob and his sis Summer
this meadow is just so gorgeous !
okay I am usually in love with coniferous trees but this little oak is my fav tree right now . I love seeing a lone tree in the middle of a field
I can't believe this drive it reminds me of Tasha Tudor's place
Bob really enjoyed showing people around
okay even the road is beautiful
and no bears this time lol !
Adventure boy was so enjoying himself !
dh stopped to show the guests the wild asparagus
this is the little flower bed my Mum planted cosmos seeds in
really a happy time with friends & family
the growing moon was so wonderful too !
we stayed til after dark to watch the fire dance ☺
I love this photo !
