A walk to the bottom

Our property rises and falls on its rambling acre. I love the low side: the light is different as is the air. There is a meandering water course that is mostly dry and overgrown with ivy.

It’s a very typical mountain bush block with some surprises here and there: ferns and pink rhododendrons.

My two cats, Albert and Whitey (guess which is which😂) have taken to following me down. They peer into the wombat hole before watching me weed and rake.

My goal this month is to trim back the ivy which is slowing engulfing the maples, ferns and azaleas. Colin built a little foot bridge to make it easier to get to the other side.

I hope you had a good gardening weekend.

  1. First, I had to look up Wombat for a refresher of what it is. They are big. Up north we have ground hogs and here in the South armadillos, but they are not nearly that big and their holes are much smaller. I will stop complaining. Anyway, I really like your woodland area and the rhododendron. In the northern Appalachians (where I grew up) they also grow wild.
