    okay, i was taking pictures of the calm after the Nor'easter the other day, they sky was really blue and the snow, well...it was snowy white!

    This pic is of my garden area, sorta in the background, it is maybe 30 x 45 feet, the white patch towards the left back... I did not put this area in, someone else did and was using it, before our new home was built...my neighbor on the right of me said the neighbor way behind me was using it before the land was bought and the old farmhouse was torn down and before they built this home of ours...

    i sense the original person that put it in was an old man...a spirit from the past, mainly because I have such a beautiful collection of plants that just don't belong on my property and were put there, by someone of the past...(through a lot of google research)maybe the people who owned the farmhouse that was once there...75, maybe 100 years ago...the apple trees all have pruning cuts that you can estimate were done at least 50 years ago??? Same with the big ass Pine trees on the property, I dunno...?

    It's a cool feeling though, when i find another plant that doesn't belong, it is like he is speaking to me...and i am finding all kinds of very old iron garden tools and a leather sole of a handstiched on shoe of a boy, and all of these handmade bricks...ALL over the place, and then on top of all of this, i found a huge, huge Wishing well, made of granite that is maybe 8 feet wide/round....spent the whole summer filling it with bolders and rocks i dug out of the property as i was clearing out flower garden areas....

    THEN! I spotted the Pileated Woodpecker, on the dead pine tree again, just pecking away, like a madman! this thing is a good 18''-20''! :)
