I came home from work Monday, fed everyone and then went outside to bring some wood in. It started to rain and I started to wander. On past the raised beds, the orchard area, along the path to upper blueberry hill. Then past it and on to the back 20. I checked out the clear cut (maybe 5-6 acres)
and then wandered on back around to upper blueberry hill. All the bushes in this picture with reddish branches are blueberry bushes. Some as high as 10 feet, some waist high, and some only ankle high. There is an apple tree in the left-center of the picture. The moss is soft and spongy.
The only sound on this walk is the soft rain (and Maggie frantically barking for me). I used to be a little terrified of this wild, and I can't say that I'm friends with it yet. But I am not uncomfortable any more. I never did bring any wood in. But that's OK. This time.
