INTO THE WOODS

Anything is possible in the woods
Do you ever see something in the shadows that makes you do a double take?   I was roaming around looking at things as I like to do because in the Winter, the property looks different because so much vegetation is gone.  On this particular day however, I noticed something different.  When I glanced over to this patch of trees, I swear I thought it was someone sitting on the ground...then as my eyes focused, it looked a bit like a statue, perhaps the bust of a head and shoulders like you might see in a museum.

All I can say is I'm glad I didn't see this at night!

Off to the farm to see what we can get done.  Cold again, and we had a little over an inch of rain the last few days so I'm sure the ground is even more wet than last weekend but hopefully I can roam around and get some things done.

There is that LIST that we need to start tackling...

Enjoy your weekend, updates as I can.

    1. Yes, it looks like a tree stump/branch that has fallen over. At least, as close as I got, that's what it looked like, ha. It was a bit too wet this weekend to get too close but I'll try again next weekend.

    1. That's under a mesquite tree and they are always kind of creepy too, especially in Winter.

    1. I think it was a branch/log that had fallen but it was a bit too wet this weekend to get close. I'll check again soon and update. :-)

    1. I think it's a log, but will check it out closer once it dries up.

  9. Hi 1st Man, thanks for popping over to my blog. I will be following your blog with interest, we are hoping to move out into the country this year and become more self sufficient so as newbies will need all the tips we can pick up.

    Seeing that would have me running for home as fast as my little legs could carry me :)

    1. Thank you! And welcome to our little corner of the world!! We were able to buy oura small fixer upper house and some fixer upper land and that's what we've been doing for about 3 years now. We hope to move out there permanently in the next few years. Until then we use this time to venture out on the weekends and do projects.

      Yes, this was a bit scary too, one of the joys of having a place not in the city, ha.

      Welcome again!!

  10. I think that is one of the coolest pictures you've ever taken. There's a line in the play that your picture made me think of; "anything is possible in the woods."

  11. Love that statue. I wonder what it looks like in moonlight. Or a storm...

    1. Ooh, I'd like to see it in the rain/moonlight, that would be neat, and hopefully not scary, ha. When it dries up out there, and I can get closer, I'll check it out in the moonlight.
