Hi all! I've been busy spending time with hubby and doing gardening. I happened to check this post and realized it had no words. Oops! That would've been interesting had it posted. I wanted to share some of my excitement with you all reference an Eastern Newt we found in our pond last weekend when Skeeter and her husband the Saint came by for a visit. The link above will take you to Tennessee's Wildlife Resource Agency. It is a great asset we Tennesseans have to help us identify local fauna. We are very happy to have found some native fauna on our new farm and hope to find more as we explore.
This was some local fauna found growing in the field. I can't identify and have asked some Facebook friends for some help as well. Maybe one of you readers recognizes this? It is growing in our field and has a tuberous root. There are several of them.
Now this is not of the local flora and fauna kind but the hunter who padlocked his deer stand to a shagbark hickory probably looks for deer on our property. That will change soon. I have contacted a neighbor who said he knows whose deer stand this is. I asked him to kindly let the owner know to remove it right away. We'll see how that goes.
I think one problem with owning land is everyone seems to think it is okay to use it as they see fit. My husband and I, on the other hand, like to think of our property on the farm just like our front and backyards in our little plot of land where we currently reside. No one would dare come into our yard and padlock a deer stand to a tree in our yard so why do people think it is okay to do this to land they don't own? Well that is another story.
We had fun visiting the land with some friends readers of this blog will recognize-Skeeter and the Saint~! Yup, they came all the way out to visit with us and it was splendid walking around the property with them. All we needed was some bratwurst to make it a German Volksmarch and we'd all feel right at home!
Mr. Fix-it is still smiling too!
