Yesterday, we had a mix of heavy rain and wind and some sun. In the morning, Molly went for her fluff and buff, so as a reward for being confined in a crate for hours, we took the mountain top walk along our road. The air smelled so clean and fresh, with hints of the blooming flowers along the way. Everything is getting greener and the trees are leafing out so much that we can't see the bend in the road form the porch anymore. I would say Spring has sprung!
|Molly needed a nap before going up the mountain|
|First, we had a game of fetch the skunk in the clean studio|
The view over the top of the mountain is just forest on the steep slope. We back up to the Chattahoochie National Forest, just beyond a small strip that is privately owned. I have never ventured up there because the land owner has No Trespassing signs facing our property all along our lot line. They even have one that says they monitor their property with cameras! I hope they aren't watching us too closely...
|I guess I expected something different, but this is what the top of the ridge looks like. It drops off at the line about mid-photo, and we can see mountains in the distance.|
|The tree that lost a limb is just behind the big tree. You can see the scar on the tree and the broken branch on the ground.|
|Here's what our house looks like from the back.|
|Molly wondered why we left her in the porch.|
|Three rows to go on this 106x106 beauty!|
|Mr Wazoo finished his work and was outside in a flash!|
|Tim put in the lilac bush. It smells divine!|
|He also planted several clumps of phlox around the yard, too.|
