Trail creation continues

In my post of October 31st, I told you how Rundy started clearing a path through the Secret Garden and the woods. Since then he leveled some areas of the path with a mattock, chain-sawed some trees that were in the way (including a huge dead pine that had toppled across a path since the path was first created), and brush-mowed the remaining path through the Witch Hazel Grove. If you want to know what using a brush mower is like, Rundy will tell you about it here. Unhappily, I have been sidelined with a back spasm since November 3rd, and haven’t been able to walk the path since he finished it. I’m finally getting to that point, but now I’ll have to wait for a break in the weather. I don’t mind it being cold, but I don’t like to walk with freezing rain blowing in my face.

If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
