I was filling the water tank at the well the other evening and found myself staring at the magnificent walnut trees in our grove. In the 26 years we've lived there I haven't fully appreciated their beauty. The size and scale of these 100-year-old trees is impressive.
Walnuts are my favorite tree. I grew up on Walnut Springs Farm in Maryland, and my father built two corner cupboards for my house from walnut on the farm.
As you would imagine, we have fat squirrels.
This squirrel barks at me every time I try to sit in the yard and read.
