If you have been following my blog for a while, my dear readers, you know my story begins on the Blackland Prairies of Texas. Owning a farm has been one of the highlights of my life. It was my opportunity to nurture the "country girl" in me.
I've shared many fence stories and scenes like the above...round bales of hay, bright sunshine, and blue skies and horizons that seem to go on forever.
That story is changing again for me. Living closer to family has become a priority.
Waking up in a totally different part of Texas, has promised to be challenging.
The roads are taking a different turn....the scenery has definitely changed.
And, now I have a forest to discover....
Today has been my first up-close look at what I might find.
One thing, for sure, I would never have encountered a logging truck on the Prairie.
It has taken me no time to figure out...
there will always be fences.

A great photo. Will be looking forward to photos from the forest.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Marilyn....enjoyed your post too!ReplyDelete
What an interesting turn in the road for you. I look forward to learning more about your new adventure!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Marty...I tried to join your blog as a followers. Apparently the link is not working. Will try again later.Delete
how marvelous! (although, i right away thought of ticks.) :) i get a bit of both here for which i am eternally grateful. love my hay bales and LOVE my trees, creek and woods!ReplyDelete
thanks for linking in, meggie!
Living closer to family is a nice idea. Our kids are so spread apart geographically that it's nearly impossible for us, but I'm glad you can do that. I'm sure you'll make wonderful and unique discoveries in your new location.ReplyDelete
I'll be closer to two of my three children...and it will be nice, for a change.Delete
There are some farm lands around here....I had no thought about the ticks...thanks for the reminderReplyDelete
Your forest seems so green! Ours have fences, too when owners have cattle, they keep the meadows by the sea in good condition. We are planning to take our sheep out to the forest, too next summer, let's see if they like the idea..ReplyDelete
Hello Maarit....Your latest post is very interesting. What a great way for the ladies to come together and share time.Delete
Beautiful! I like the round bales and the old windmill!ReplyDelete
Hi Brian...I wish the windmill had been clearer...the sun was so bright when I took the photo...I've watched the windmill for some time, as more blades fall off.Delete
Oh how nice! As a prairie dweller, I envy you your new forest!ReplyDelete
I will always return to the prairie for visits....but, I do believe there will be fun in the forest. The bird population is unbelievable !Delete
How true! What would our lives be without fences, XOXOReplyDelete
Hello Susan....The packing and moving has left me little time to visit. I'll be dropping by this week end.Delete
Yes there will, and always some very lovely places they can be found, just like here!ReplyDelete
I think that is why I love blogging...it encourages me to share, with photos and words, interesting things around me.Delete
I look forward to photos and updates about your new forest!ReplyDelete
Hi Michelle....thanks for stopping by. I have sort of been MIA, with the packing and move. I'll check in with you before the week end is over.Delete
Being raised in Oregon, I love the forest. I remember, though, a friend from Wyoming who was at graduate school with me in Connecticut. She told me that trees "made her nervous" which I just could NOT understand. Later I lived in Central Illinois for four years, and I began to see how she could feel that way! I always feel that trees are my friends.ReplyDelete
I must say, after yesterday, I understand what your friend was talking about. I experienced my first electrical storm yesterday. The lighting was striking the ground...and I remembered, from years ago, seeing a tree struck by lighting. They are still beautiful to me....and I survived the first storm in the forest.ReplyDelete
it is so much fun exploring new territory....ReplyDelete
Nice that you to have a forest. You have different trees so it will be nice to see more of your forest. Have a nice week.ReplyDelete
Intriguing! All the best with the new surroundings.ReplyDelete
It looks like it will be an interesting journey ~ReplyDelete
I am sure you will embrace the moments !
