We are getting ready to move out to the land and checking on it as often as we can. I have been out here for the last three days taking care of small jobs; finding someone to 'mow' the 2 - 4 foot grasses, finding someone to help hook up the irrigation pump to electricity and checking on the land.
I finally had time to take a bunch of pictures of the wildflowers while my Mom and I waited to watch the fireworks (today is independence day) in town from our hill.
There is a small highway a quarter mile away and a fairly busy side road at the edge of the property that provides steady white noise, but when no one is driving by there are pretty intense sound coming from the bushes. A lot of birds, I can not yet identify and other smallish creatures flittering around.
The flying bugs that come out at twilight have noticed us, luckily none of them seem to be mosquitos.
