A VIEW DOWN THE DRIVEWAY

Driveway view
In the interest of sharing, and seeing more of the property, here is a view (right after I mowed it all!) that I thought I'd share.  This is looking down our driveway toward the house.  It's from where 2nd Family's house is.  It isn't from the main road though because we share the main driveway that goes from the road to this point (about 3 acres away) with them.  Here you can also see, on the other side of that large post, where our property begins.  So this part of it is our driveway, all the way up to the house.

On the left in both of the photos, you can see a fence line that separates it into what we all call the 'back pasture', which belongs to them (2nd Family).  We hope to someday share some livestock with them in that pasture.  Sheep?  Goats?  A couple of milk cows?  Pigs?  Time will tell I suppose.

The photo below is about halfway up the driveway so you can see a bit closer view of the house.  We've always liked how the house sits back far enough and behind enough trees that it stays pretty private.  No one can see the house from any of the roads around the property and that's nice.

You're welcome. I guess I should post something that shows it. Might be time to get the google satellite image up.

Oh my gosh someone else who loves that smell too! I have friends that say it gives them sinus problems, I just inhale it in and love it. Maybe being outside all the time (had to mow the grass when I was a kid every weekend) kept me allergy free, ha. I do love that smell. Someone needs that in a candle!
