The Land keeps us away

Lots has been happening here on The Land. Amberfox is ready for the High Summer Gathering.

The Land and the spirit here have been keeping us from blogging. I know we could pull ourselves away to blog and we will try more to do that. That's why we have a blog, right?

So we will try to resist the full pull the temptation of this place some of the time to tell you more about whats happening or has happened.

Aside for a trip to see Superman, Johnny's new pirate movie and The Stewart Park Music Festival in Perth, all of which I mentioned enough to eventually get all here to go, we have been happily sequestered here on the land.

One of the biggest changes is with the tractor shed, some 60 years or more old it has needed some tender care in return of years of good service. New doors installed, foundation secured and hertiage hinges uncovered and put to use. Much of this required some dunging out inside and outside this ancient building.

Uncovering many artifacts of previous lives, mostly in the form of iron from long since discarded farm machinery, some of it easily over a hundred years of age. An old set of sliegh rails, a wagon hitch with much of its wood long since rotted away, and many unidentifible pieces.

Wildlife has returned in abundance as have the fruits of the land, heritage Crab Apples, Asparagus, Raspberries, Currents and pin Cherries. All loved by the many creatures that live here. Several pies have been concocted with these berries with Ken's Erection style magic.

The sauna is ready, new shower and clothes line make it that much more inviting, wood aplenty waiting to be enjoyed, to be sure it is ready it has been tested and retested often lately bringing much happiness.

More news tomorrow, more pictures from here and the nearby Missisippi!

The High Summer Gathering is days away! Hope to see you there.
