Friday evening we went on a family walk around the property. We did this a lot last year, but haven't been as good about doing it since David came along. It was really nice to get back out there.
The first thing we discovered was a young buck that was dead out by our pond. It was still fresh enough to be stinky. That gave the children a lot to talk about for the next day or two.
Remember my last post about making elderberry tincture? Well, I'm not 100% certain, but I'm thinking that we just might have elderberries growing on our property. I need to research this some more, but I suspect that this might be elderberry. If anyone can shed some light on this, I'd appreciate the input!
Walking back to the Forbidden Meadow was especially pretty because the entire pasture there was full of these pretty yellow flowers.
I'm still really excited about having Passionfruit (Maypops) on our property. However, I have yet to actually harvest any for our own use. It seems that the deer have taken possession of them so all I ever get to see are small green fruits.
Out in the woods we were surprised to see that a tree had fallen right in the middle of the path we normally walk.
It couldn't have happened too long ago because the leaves are still green. Looks like God is providing next year's firewood!
