The problem here is one that was clearly man made and not by us. When the county paved the road out front, they ran a drainage canal back into the woods, stopping just short of my property line. The result: when it rains heavily and the drainage ditch which was added on the property to handle it is overwhelmed, the water flows out into the nearby woods and lower portions of my pasture.
Despite that, the scenery on a sunny afternoon is quite dramatic with the Spanish moss draped down from the trees with a backdrop of sparkling water in the sunshine. Alas, it doesn't stay long, never more than a day or two, but it does mean for at least a few hours I can say my house is on lakefront property.
Actually, it's just another reason that I love our landlocked Ark and, of course, all the animals that reside with and around us here. If you'd like to learn more, gaze through the categories on my home page or go to my book page at www.outskirtspress.com/honeyweshouldaboughttheark.
Thank God I was converted into a country boy. Enjoy the pics and God bless.
