Oh, yeah! That's the kind of wood pile I like to see by the mailbox. It means that almost all of the wood is now piled near the outdoor boiler.....
I wondered what the pile would look like from above, so the ladder was near and I climbed up onto the shed roof. Yes, the wood is all there now, just have to fling it all into the stove. I glad that doesn't have to happen all at once.
Reminded me of a paper mill yard. Only not as big. As long as I was up there, I decided to document the view from this angle.
Looking straight east, the yellows of the aspen and the green of balsam is quite a sight.
Southeast gets this view of a variety of trees and grasses.
A new view of the house. Last fall we saw some pictures taken from the roof of the house as Ivan and I worked on re-building the chimney up there.
The flowering crab is LOADED with those little red bird candies. Lot's of feathered visitors, including a couple of patteridge.
Sunday afternoon was spent at the home of Sherburn (Sherb, as he is called) and Virginia Mabie, in the Kennan area. A couple of years ago, Sherb built this wonderful wooden windmill! He bought the top works, got plans for the tower and went to work.
A close-up of the top platform shows that it's not very large when compared to the ladder, which is of normal proportions. Of course, I could not resist climbing the thing to get a better look at the mill and a look at the surrounding country.
This is what it looks like straight down to the ground 25 feet below my feet.
I got a few pictures of their house and surroundings and incorporated parts of the windmill in the photos.
I like this one the best with the sun directly behind. It was a great afternoon with a chance to see all of their projects and crafts. A very interesting couple.
I gotta go, Carlo
