Everybody's been really nice, really welcoming. But I'm tired from the move, so I knocked off a little after four today, went to the bank, and stopped off to explore an abandoned horse farm just down the road from the office.
After the driveway ends where I guess the house used to be, there's a faint track you can follow (provided you have four-wheel drive: Gawd, I love my little truck!) around the pastures. I saw a big, black snake, have no idea what kind, Mourning Dove, Northern Mockingbirds, White-breasted Nuthatches, an Eastern Phoebe, Blue Jays, Northern Cardinals, and wildflowers. None of the birds would stand still long enough for a photograph; but on the whole, the flowers were pretty cooperative.
