These pics are all taken on our property. One of our big trees blew down in a big wind/tornado so it needed to be removed from the field so mowing can take place. The tornado passed by within a mile of our property and took out some barns, a trailer and all the windows of a big stone house down the road. (not while we were there, but a couple of weeks prior to our arrival)
Sweetie and Uncle Jack taking a break and deciding how to move that big log.
Tim loved working the tractor. He wants to buy a tractor and keeps looking at ads. I told him he cannot buy a tractor until we actually move to MO. I don't need a tractor that we aren't using in my yard in AK.
While they were working, I wondered around and took pictures. Here's my pond.
This is the back fence line that needs to be cleared and re-fenced. We had planned to do this work while there but the field was still too wet for a large tractor to be driving over it. Tim is going to go back down in Nov/Dec to work on it.
Sassafras tree. I love these, but am told they are kind of a junk tree, so many of them in the fence line will have to go.
Beautiful field - I don't think I will ever get tired of looking at fields.
And a snake. Tim found this in the front yard of our Aunt's house.....just across the street from our property. I believe it is a milk snake (now I can't remember what I was told) I do know it was not poisonous, just kind of creepy. I am trying not to get freaked out by the various critters that MO has that AK does not. I had a few ticks on me, and truthfully, ticks aren't a big deal. I never felt like freaking out. However, big spiders really get to me. And snakes might if they were any closer than this pic.
