I thought I’d go up and visit a neighbor that lived high up in the hills today.
Wild blackberry vines
But first, I removed some more wild blackberry vines for about an hour, starting with these ones.
Checking out another spring
After a brief rest, I hopped on the dirt bike and headed on up into the hills. I wanted to stop at this spring to check it out. The water comes from these big ferns on the left.
There’s a little water crossing the road from the spring in the ferns on the right.
Looking for the spring source
I made my way into the big ferns looking for where the water was coming out of the hillside.
I found a little water, but not much. This spring might just be for an animal watering hole. I’ll have to dig it out a bit to explore it more..
Headed to the neighbors
Then I headed on up the road to the neighbor’s place, just ahead.
I parked here. They keep the gate closed to keep their three dogs in. I let myself in and gave the dogs a pet.
Some of the neighbors where home. A little girl met me and said she had something to show, two things, she said.
She had a new little bunny she showed me.
And she has a bunch of new peeps for their chicken house. She picked this one up to show me.
I visited until they had to go somewhere when I left and headed back to our place where I went down this trail.
I was headed to our water tanks where I wanted to turn another spring into the water tanks. It comes down a pipe just above the tanks, up here.
This water has been flowing out, not going in the tanks, all Winter as we haven’t needed it. I turned a valve that shut it off and turned it into the water tanks with the other spring pipe that we’ve been using.
I went on home and cut more blackberry vines out of the yard, starting with this bunch around my mulberry tree.
I worked on cutting the vines until I got tired out and my back said to quit.
