getting green

It is a very pretty spring so far. It's also been raining. I took the camera out in the rain this afternoon. The horses were happily hanging out in the barn, Danny and Mags eating hay constantly, and Java keeping an eye on us (mother hen) when she could see us out her window. The horses were out this morning and it's been a nice quiet Sunday for them.... well, except for when we had to get the chain saw going, but the only horse that cared was Java. We had to clear a couple of trees to make way for more pine trees that we will be planting along the property line up at the top paddock.

The fern path:

The other side of the property looking up from the pond.
The technique of this photo is called "crooked because I'm trying to not get the camera wet"

The barn surrounded by more green:

And, the side of the property where we are planning some tree removal, tree planting along the road and another paddock. Eventually it will be a grassy paddock. This is what it looks like now. No, we did not plant those spruce trees too close and in the middle of the spot there. We only moved here a year and a half ago, and are working on it... :)

You have a very beautiful place - it must be calming for the horses (and for you!).

The fern path always looks so pretty in your pictures.
