The Drive To Twig Forest
I mentioned in an earlier post that my brother, wife, and I have invested in a 20 acre triangle of previously planted pines. I have barely walked this new property due to my schedule and my poor brother probably wonders what I have gotten him in to, since he's seen it less and lives 2 hours away. (By the way, he finally updated his blog, Minorcanculture)
This is a view of more of the "pretty" fence along the road to Twig Forest. This post and the pics that follow are just some of the view along the way to TF. It's a short ride from my home 10 acres to the TF...about 3.5 miles.
This area is loaded with deer and turkey and they are a constant challenge to driving in the morning and evening. My girls have hit 3 of them, totaling a taurus, a neon, and expensively damaging a cutlass, ...but I digress.
The ride to Twig Forest is the first part of my daily commute so I can see stopping in for a quick visit on the way home once in a while. It's a beautiful ride this time of year with lots of yellow wildflowers like tickseed and swamp sunflower still blooming along with muhly grass and lobelia.
In the wetter areas, the maples, cypress, and sweetgums are beginning to change color...fall must be on the way :)
