And here you can see my "wishing well" - the roof of it anyways! The rock wall is about 30 inches high and you can just see the top of it. The "wishing well" is the one of the original wells on the property. For years it was covered with a plywood platform. I was always worried that one of the kids or one of their friends would break through the wood and end up down the well... There's a steel grate set into the mortar so that can't happen. Visitors do drop coins down it and make wishes! You can just barely hear a little splash when the coin hits the water.

Winter Blahs: The Explanation
My husband probably wouldn't be too pleased if he knew that I'd posted this picture of him on my blog, but considering he never reads it, he'll never know! Besides, I needed him for scale. This is why winter is getting me down. This picture was taken early this week after our storm last weekend. Another one is coming tomorrow. For scale, Mr. Me is just shy of 6' 1"
