When one lives in the country, the neighborhood consists of twenty or more square miles. You know, the road you travel to the library, the store, or the local restaurant, which in my case, is
the public country club. A month or so ago Pam, from Digging, posted a blog concerning her neighborhood. I would have loved to participate but I thought it would be way too boring to just view the road. I have a sparse neighborhood as you can see from these photos. However, there is the view and the quiet.
This is the view this past week as I drove out the drive and down the road. The road is a dirt road which is very dusty in the summer but since I am well off it by 100 yards or so the dust is filtered by the trees and it is quiet here. This second picture is coming home.
My driveway is on the right at the top of the little rise in the distance. As you can see, the foliage is stunning. We did have much needed rain on Friday night and the accompanying wind did toss a few of the leaves everywhere but now it just looks more like fall.
The neighbor's view from his front porch! (Note the low water level in the pond.)
The morning walk takes me past this view of the neighbors' pond. The house is on the other side of the road and looks across and down toward the pond and pine copse. A mile or so away and around the corner is a man made pond. I stopped to take this photo, trespassing to do so. Don't tell! It needed to be shared.
This weekend was also the weekend of the family golf outing. There were twenty of us playing and it was a glorious day. Why do I love golf? Well, I just started playing two years ago so I am behind a bit as a player but the views
are spectacular, you get to play outside and I found that I needed some time away from the garden. What better place than this open space with a perfect lawn.
Maybe not an organic one but a perfect one. I generally only play nine holes at a time. Golf does take some time but the long days of summer allow evening play when the course is a bit less crowded. Autumn necessitates earlier games. It is getting dark so quickly now! One last shot of one of my partners in the family outing.
Sister number 3's husband. We call him 'Master of the Woods'! As you can see,
he is well equipped with the latest golf accessories! This is a bit of a deviation from the garden but I wanted to share the colors and fun of the weekend with you all!
