9:30 A.M. and the temperatures are steadily rising. The ground is still wet but the sun is up and it is pleasant. Lilly and I take our little walk down the ‘Green Road’. This is an area of the property that is forbidden to the cows and separated off with a wall of pine and a hedge of bramble. Most mornings all we see and hear are the birds and an occasional rabbit scarpering away. Bliss. I’ve cried many a tear of thanks on this ‘Little Green Road’. What a beautiful spot.
And yes, the sky really is this blue in SW Virginia!
