Sunday Tractor Ride


I wanted to get this posted last night but didn't get it done so here it is today. Yesterday Mike and I were outside and he got the John Deere diesel out to run it for a bit. Hadn't had it out for awhile so it needed to run for a bit. He had gone back the hollow to our shed to check things out and came back to tell me about and iced water fall in one of the ravines. I couldn't get a really good picture of it but if you click on the picture it will enlarge.


So here is the first shot of it, there are trees and limbs sticking out of it. Wonder what else has frozen in there? I need to climb up there, when the weather is better to take some pictures of the rocks. I have climbed there before but didn't have the camera.


Below is the tractor we went back on; not a really comfortable ride for me. Sitting on the fender and having to turn your feet different ways to get a good place to stand and sit. I sure wouldn't want to ride for a long way like that.


Here is a close up of the rocks you can see just ahead of the tractor. Look at all the moss on them. It was so bright green, what a beautiful color!



This is looking at the stream heading to the shed. This stream connects to the larger creek that splits our hay field and runs along the road. The shed is just out of sight to the right. Below is a short video I did of the stream; it sounded so good that I wanted to share it with you. I also will at some point video the creek in front of the house. It makes more noise and I get to hear it everyday, love the sound!

The pictures are lovely. The frozen waterfall is different, I'm guessing it was really cold to get that to freeze.

Beautiful country, Jane. And, the snow is melting. I'll bet you can feel a little spring in the air?

Hi Jane, first time visitor. I love your blog and the video of the creek is sensational. I love the sound of running water. We have a waterfall from our Blackstone Valley Canel that I frequently visit along our new bike / walking trail that is so peaceful and relaxing to hear.

How lovely!

We've got a creek behind our home as well. I think you may have inspired me to go take a video! :)

Thank you all, yes, it is very peaceful here and especially back the hollow. It is a ways from the road, but we don't get much traffic here at all so it's very quiet. I wish I could have climbed up there to get a better picture of the "ice brick" not really sure what all was frozen in it!
Today it has rained all day and a fog has set in; looks like a werewolf movie set! Egads, there is a full moon too!! LOL
