Now you see it, Now you don't

Today we actually had something to watch.  Well, at least this morning we did.

The property across the road welcomed a tree chipper.
Large jaws on the front in order to devour any tree in it's path.

I have taken quite a few sunset pictures with this tree.
And of the deer under the tree
I'm sure you can see where I'm going with this, so here it is.

And the tree is gone.  It only took the monster 20 seconds to devour it.  For right now the two trees behind it are saved.  The surveyors have to come back to confirm the route of the road.  The stakes they left behind were chewed on, pulled out and tossed on the ground by the horses and the deer.  Maybe they knew what was coming?

These landscape chippers are the first step in building a road to the pad.  Well, except for the surveyors marking the path.  Next will come the gate builders.  So far we hear that the gates will be going in sometime the first of the month. (March)  As with all things gate guarding, we'll believe it when the equipment and workers pull up.  Supposedly there are 3 more gates going in at this corner of 4 properties.  4 gate guards all within 50 yards of each other.  Don't know if we will see that before we leave.

With all the rain lately and the nice weather in between the wild flowers are, well, going wild and, well, growing like weeds.

I love the color against the drab color of the roads.

I'll leave you with that.


  1. Great pictures! The story of the tree reminds me of the movie Fern Gully. Do you remember that? Love you guys. Me and kids are counting down. Jaxson asked me just this morning how many months till you come? :)

  2. Hahaha! Adrienne - it reminds me of the same movie! One of the best movies. Beautiful pics Aunt D! Too bad it's going to look not as nice soon.

  3. Yes, I remember Fern Gully. Great kids movie. Thanks Nicki. Please tell the boys hi!
