An Early Evening Walk In Our Woods

Last evening my hubby and I took a little jaunt back into our woods. We have almost 24 acres of hills and woods. Last year, hubby built a pond all by himself! We stocked it with fish last year and now he is really enjoying feeding his fish. We have seen lots of new baby fish.



This is the pond that hubby built. Just him and his tractor! He spend many, many hours of sweat or hard work building this pond. It is about 1/3 of an acre in size.




The woods are such a peaceful place to spend time. We heat our home from the trees from these woods. My hubby spends much time each year cutting and splitting wood to keep us warm and cozy.




Of course, before we get started to the woods, his "girls" are looking for handouts! These two heifer cows are always looking for the feed bucket that usually contains treats of either apples or corn cobs. They will eats right out of his hand.

What a wonderful life you have there! Your hubby didn't build a pond, he built a beautiful lake! Do share more photos with us please.:)

How beautiful! I would love to have a pond on our farm. I think I will have to show this to J and give a big hint!
Love "the girls" too!

Hi Mary Ann. It's so nice to "meet" you through your photos and your writing. I just saw that you're following me on my little blog, and I apologize for not stopping by earlier. I'll definitely be back here! :) Carol J.

ps--I think I want a pond now!

Good day, Mary Ann ~ TY for popping over for a visit.

I love woodsy walk but the cows would scare me to pieces. 24 ac would afford many lovely peaceful places to explore. Beautiful setting.
