A road of the past

Finally I got to adventure through the rest of the yard at my apartment. It had been raining when I've had free time so I had not had the chance to fully explore where I live. Well, today was beautiful after work and I had to take advantage of that.

The fenced in part of the yard is huge, but I'm more in love with what is past the fence. To give you an idea of what you see below, a local to the area told us a little about the valley we live in. There is a path beside the house that leads down to the beauty featured below. I have to say that location-wise, we seriously lucked out.


This path was actually a road at one time that lead to the bridge that you would cross the river on and through to the other side. The whole area was only a few farms but of course later generations ruined it. They parted up the land for developments. Yes, I'm glad I get to live here, but I wish greed didn't ruin country land. But anyway, I'm told the river is clean. I do see fish under that bridge. Now I'll stop babbling. Enjoy the photos below. :)

  1. Fiddleheads! You can eat those you know, I have a wild foods cookbook and there's a section on them

  2. How lovely your corner of the world is.. :)

  3. Good to know about the fiddleheads. I thought they were adorable. By the way, which Sarah is this?

    Nici, that it is. I seriously lucked out.

  4. Really, really nice. :) And I really dig that fiddlehead shot!

  5. Thanks! The fiddleheads were so cute. I had to get a good shot of them.

  6. wow. I can't believe it's been that long since I looked at your blog. =(

    Fiddleheads (make sure it's the ostrich fern - Matteuccia struthiopteris!!) are a Maliseet delicacy (and a delicacy for their neighbors, the Mi'kmaq, Passamaquoddy, New Brunswickers, etc). Very healthy (and excellent for the digestive tract). Unfortunately industry is looking at taking over the food. If you found the fiddleheads in the wild, I'd suggest keeping it a secret and after learning how, harvest them yourself. =)
