This is what I call our "lower field". As you drive up our 1/2 mile long driveway towards the house, if you look right you'll see this field just before you get to the apple trees. There are almost no leaves left now...this photo was taken a couple of weeks ago.
Can you see the paths through the grass? Those are deer trails.
Do you see the very small green dot towards the centre of the photo? That's a small pine tree, and just beyond the pine tree is a spring fed pond where the deer like to drink.
And...do you see the dead trees that are laying on the field? There were 3 large trees down...and they aren't there anymore! G visited us today, and brought along a chain saw for John. The two of them cut up the 3 trees and we piled the wood at the side (unfortunately it won't be any good for firewood). Thanks for the chainsaw work, G! And thanks to DIL and G for the chainsaw. I have a feeling it's going to come in handy this winter when those cold winter winds blow trees down on our driveway (something that's already happened a couple of times).
