On April 12th, 2019 I purchased six acres of hemlock-birch woodland in Windsor, NH. It is covered in boulders and moss and ferns and wildflowers and has a brook running right across it. There are areas of swamp, marsh, and dry woodland both sloping and flat. Plus an ancient outhouse :)
Less than two months passed from my first thought of buying land to close. I fell in love with it from the online listing. It was February, but the photos were from mid-summer. The second photo in the listing showed the brook lush with cardinal flower and ferns - that made me swoon. The third photo showed an enormous boulder - that stole my heart.
I visited for the first time in March. The snow was up to my knees, but I found the seed pods of an orchid species I had never seen before - that sealed the deal. I had to have it.
As the snow has melted, I have only fallen more and more in love with it. I'm an amateur botanist and a wildflower worshiper - this is my heaven.
I intend to share my adventures here.
I have thoroughly enjoyed your observations. I am envious of your beautiful property. Please keep sharing your notes and photos. For an “amateur”, you know a lot.ReplyDelete
