Planted as seedlings about 35 years ago, my oak trees are thriving. I pose with one for a size perspective.
Over the 35 years, this creek has shifted about 12" toward the trees. Eventually a tree will be undermined so I'm going to have to get in there and alter the course of the creek while shoring up the left bank.
It's a jungle in there except for this one row and a few paths. During each visit, I select a section and clear it of the brush but it is a slow process.
The Buxton Inn, the oldest continuous running inn in the state. It was on the balcony, 5 years ago that I, children and a grandchild posed for a pic. We were going to recreate that image on Tuesday evening but the place caught fire that morning!!! What are the odds????
I drive to Zanesville to visit my 102 year old mom, passing the famous Longaberger basket which used to be the corporate headquarters. Now, it sits, empty as no entity wants to make it a home.
