Take a walk with me,
will you?
Down the lane, across our hay field,
to the lush green forest that awaits.

We lovingly call those woods
The Hundred Acre Wood.


(Yes, we adopted the Winnie the Pooh theme for the area)

"So help me if you will, 
I've got to get back to the house at Pooh Corner 
by one."

The main trail into the woods leads back to a clearing.
(Pooh Corner)


It is in that clearing that our platform tent will be erected.
Here is the progress of the platform.


It's coming along nicely, and will be finished today.
The tent is being made and should arrive late July.

It is from this clearing that the main trail diverges into several
different trails, each with it's own name...


Each trail ends in a different location,
like the sunset meadow, 
or circuitously back to the hay field.

On any given trip into these woods, you are sure see deer,
turkeys, bear, bobcat and a myriad of other smaller wildlife...
a piece of wilderness right in our own back yard!

The last bit of news for the week is....

Goodbye to O'Malley's doeling (the little girl of the "twins").
She is the prettiest baby we have had over the years.


She is going to a great new home...
a gift to a papa from a loving daughter.
She will have one other goat companion to keep her company,
when she is not accompanying her new Daddy around the farm.


Good bye, little "fawn" goat!
 (She looks more like a baby deer than a goat)

Now we must wait until next Spring for more baby goats.

I have always loved pooh and friends.

What a beautiful goat, she DOES look as pretty as a deer.

She's a beautiful little thing.... And what a wonderful daughter for thinking of such a gift for her dad. I think it's awesome!

I'm sure there will be one happy Dad with that cutie. The walk into Pooh Corner this morning was wonderful. Ahhh, to stay in the tent in the woods!

How nice to have a woods on your property. I love the "Pooh" connection.

I can't wait to see how the tent turns out! It would be so peaceful to sleep outside and hear the sounds of the farm. Hopefully no bear will intrude!

What a cute idea for naming your woods. I must say that doeling is darling. Glad she's going to a good home.
