Several years ago we started putting a path up through the woods. This path went up the steps and wound around the big tree in the background then on down into our lower side yard. Everywhere we could find a patch of sunlight, we planted our “overflow” daylilies. These pretty Lenten Roses are also in our little woods. Our plans for this area included putting a rock garden in the natural formation of rocks, visible in the center photo above. We also intended to include a bench somewhere in this area because it gives a unique and pleasant view of the rest of our yard. Then we discovered that some of the really big trees in that area were dangerous because of falling limbs. Clearing an area for the path, mulching it and putting in a few steps– nothing we couldn’t handle. But taking down really big trees, probably 100 years old more or less, was beyond us, and became a road block. However, we have since removed some of the trees, and are hoping to start again winding a path up through our little woods.
