Me and Crazy Dog (her name is Oakley) took a walk in the woods today. At the end of our street is a mini grave yard. It has a pretty black iron fence around it and is not very scary. The first Sherriff of Guilford County and his family are buried there. It is a small family plot and the land that is our neighborhood used to be his family’s farm land.
Are you coming?
Behind it is a trail that takes you through the woods and this time of year it is beautiful and the dog loves it.
Last week when we were walking I saw all kinds of unusual mushrooms so today I grabbed my camera as we headed out the door. Did I see any mushrooms in the woods today? No…not a single one. But I did find this beauty in the my neighbors lawn. Does that count?
There were lots of Revolutionary War Battles fought near here. One of the most famous is the Battle of Guilford Courthouse and General Greene and Cornwallis fought near here. We’ve been told that soldiers are buried in these woods. Some of their graves are marked with stones.
Does anyone know what this plant and these berries are?
It is a fun place to walk the dog and the leaves are only just now starting to change. I am still looking for the mushrooms.
