Take a walk with me...

Accompany me on a relaxing stroll around the back field.
Baron's leading the way.
We have a few trees that keep their leaves all winter long.
With the slightest wind, they lend a good rustle to the walk.

We have a boogeyman tree back here.  Looks a bit like
a scary jack o' lantern.  Best not to lurk here at dusk.

There's a creek that runs through the side of our property...
...and it curves to continue across the back of our land.
Scratchy briars and clinging vines help form a natural boundary to the horse pasture.
Berries add a bit of color along the way.
Mistletoe gives us some green although it's a bit bedraggled from earlier freezes.
The racoon tracks tell us we're not the only ones who use these trails.
And the dogs and/or coyotes have gifted us with yet another boar skull.
Marigold says it's time to go back up front.
Because look who's waiting for us at the barn for feeding time.
Thanks for sharing this walk on a lovely February day...

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I wish we'd had a nice day for a walk here in Virginia! I need to go on one because I'm in search of spring that I think has gotten lost around here! :-)

Hope the rest of your day has been enjoyable!!

Gorges Smythe said...

Okay, ya got me; I'm a follower now. Being an old sawmill man, I figure anyone that takes picyures of trees has to be alright!

Dar said...

It really was a beauty of a day for a stroll. Thanks for the invite. Up north in your old home state of WI, it actually was sunny and 32 above zero today! I know, a miracle and so nice out. Grandlove Ben, and I stayed out at least an hour. It was a heatwave.
Love your horses. They look like they want to take a trail ride.

Louise said...

Ahhhh, what a lovely walk. Just seeing your early Spring makes me feel better. I wonder if you have crayfish in that stream?

Farmchick said...

Great walk and my son would LOVE to find that boar skull on a walk.

Robin said...

Theresa, thanks for the walk round! It's no doubt much warmer than it is here. Still below 0 Celsius with a bitter cold wind.
I wish it would go away!

Farm Girl said...

Well I enjoyed the walk. I like your scary tree. Why can't you go there at dark? Are there bats? or skunks?
