Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Return to the Glen

Sunday afternoon was a rather warm, high 50ºs day so I decided to grab the camera this time, put on my boots and head down to the glen where I visited on Saturday.

The glen is on the south side of our property.  Our backyard borders the top of the glen and with the leaves off the trees we can see into glen when we stand on the edge.  Come spring the view will slowly disappear.

I headed down the path way and down to the creek.

I can see just a bit of the house once I get down the path.

Tree trunks are scattered in the woods victims of the summer derecho.

I was in luck.  More artifacts, here displayed on a mossy tree trunk.

I headed up stream and spied these.  A canning lid seal made of ceramic or porcelain and it was whole.

And another pottery shard.

 On the trip back up the path way this snail shell caught my eye but I left it in place.

 An old tree stand built before we owned this property.
 Almost back to the house and this is perspective I have of my house.

And back to the top.

Connecting to Our World Tuesday.

Beautiful area, Marcia. I love your home and the 'glen' beside it. That is a neat path down to the creek --and you found lots of special treasures.... Love it..

Well I guess I'm south compared to you there in Ontario. It's still too early to have all that greenery at the creek. Chalk it up to GW.

Marcia said...

Thanks for all the compliments. I should take that walk more often.

Thats a great walk to have at the bottom of the garden!

Were you feet off the ground in the first picture?

Stewart - good for you noticing my feet were off the ground. I sat on a log and took that photo. My heels may have been touching but that's it.
