Through the Woods to Grandmother’s House We Go…

Hello everyone! I’ve been enjoying the past few days of springy-ness! ๐Ÿ˜€ How about you?

Yesterday we worked on a path in our grandparent’s woods. They have a fairly good sized wood, but the problem thatย is when its warm tons of brambles and weeds spring up. So, since there weren’t any leafy things, we decided to go for it! With our rakes, pruners, more rakes, and more pruners, we cleared a fairly nice path.

Wanna see some pictures? ๐Ÿ˜€

There’s the partย close to the beginning…


Clearing the path! We had lots of tools to make the path with. ๐Ÿ™‚

We lined ‘The Clearing’ with rocks to make it more defined. It really helped.


We tried to get all of the little rocks and tiny saplings out of the way so we could go barefoot! (Look, a barefoot gal! XD )


We cut down a tree to make the clearing, and then put a fire-ring around it, hoping to burn the stump out. Unfortunately,ย it was too dry soย we had to put out the small fire weย made. :/ย Maybe when it’s a little wetter. ๐Ÿ™‚

DSCN4166.JPGThere was a up-rooted stump that we carried into the clearing and pushedย dirt up around it soย it really looked like it was there the whole time! In the middle is a little terrarium with a snail and a salamander.


This is the snail, April. She escaped, but while we had her she was really neat! ๐Ÿ™‚ Here are some more photos of her. I guess they are all kind of the same… XD



Uh… that’s Sally. XD Or more like theย leaf-covered back of Sally. She, unlike the salamander in my previous post, is a Jefferson Salamander. ๐Ÿ™‚ She escaped too. :/ But I’m sure we’ll find more!clearing.jpg.png

That’s the clearing!! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s pretty different right now though, we put up a hammock, added some logs for seats, and made another trail branching out of it.

We hope to make lots more trails! Would you like to see more clearings and such?

Also, our grandmother has lots of daffodils! Here are some photos. ๐Ÿ™‚



Which of those photos was your favorite? ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you ever make trails in woods?


I am hungry for potatoes. XD

  1. Yeah, that path was really fun to make. (I’m Megan’s sister, in case you didn’t know, comment-readers. :D) That’s a great picture of the clearing! And I LOVE the first picture of daffodils!


  2. That’s so cool! You’re really lucky, I have absolutely no space to do this, though I’ve always wanted to. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ {This is R}


    1. C, A and I {R} caught a snail when we were six while camping. We named it slimy. I think we managed to keep it overnight by at morning we let it go and made disgusting food with left-overs instead.


      1. Yes, well have fun anyway! Sometimes I do this at the park, so it’s still pretty fun. Nice pictures too!


  3. Wow, that’s really nice! We used to make a LOT of trails before my older sisters went to college. (We have a huge woods behind our house) It’s a lot of fun. Love the pics, Megan! ๐Ÿ™‚

    PS: Maggie looks so CUTE! ^-^


      1. Poison ivy?! My siblings and I raked out a path in our woods in the fall, but I got tons of poison ivy, so we aren’t allowed to go back there any more. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Our path looked almost just like yours, we even found snails too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. You have really nice woods! We have/make paths in our woods, but clearing one basically just means smashing all the prickers ans brush out of the way. And you put stones to line the path to make the path more defined!! :O It looks like a little fairy tale forest! In our woods we notice deer trails. ๐Ÿ˜›



    1. Thanks!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Yeah, where we live they are pretty nice. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Mm, we have some blackberry brambles as well.
      Yes! We got loads of rocks in a wheelbarrow. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Hehe! Yes! It sort of does. ๐Ÿ˜› Cool!


  5. Cool! I really like making paths in the woods, too. Our woods has a lot of prickers in it, though, so when we make trails, we have to do a lot of brush whacking. It’s pretty fun, though!

    P.S. Oh, wow, daffodils by you are already blooming?! Your pictures of them are really pretty, btw. Anyway, we have daffodils, but they haven’t bloomed yet.


  6. AHHH! That looks like it would have been SOOOO much fun to make! I wish I could have been there!!!! I LOVED all of the pictures! XD That was funny about the ‘look, a barefoot gal! XD ‘ XD ๐Ÿ˜› Hehe! ๐Ÿ™‚ XD XD Ha! I wish we could walk barefoot around our place more often, but it’s got some nails some places and things in we don’t. But I could if I wanted to! ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I probably will more in the Summer! ๐Ÿ˜›
    I loved the pics of the daffodils too!!! We saw some in town yesterday! They were pretty! I was like “Oh! So THAT”S what the daffodils are” XD I’m not good with flower types. (I almost wrote flower ‘breeds’ instead of types! XD ๐Ÿ˜› ) Hehe!
    ~K.A~ LOVED this post!!! Keep postin’ girl! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜› XD โ™ฅ โ˜บโ˜ป


    1. YES! It sure was!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€
      Thank you!! ๐Ÿ˜€
      Hehe! XD Aww, yeah, that’s too bad! I hope you can go barefoot in summer. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Yes! I LOVE daffodils! ๐Ÿ˜› LOL! XD That’s pretty funny. ๐Ÿ˜›
      Okay! I will! ๐Ÿ˜›


      1. Thank you, Megan! ๐Ÿ˜€
        No, I don’t have anything in particular! Just fields, woods, that sort of stuff!
