Ponderosa Part II

Well, here is the rest of the pondersosa. Pretty much covers the land around here. But, trust me when I say the pictures really don't do it justice...so ya just have to see it in person. Please call a head though wanna make sure I am around for the guiding tour. Enjoy your walk this evening.
The side along the mole hole that goes to the back yard
across the pond heading to the side behind the gazebo
so peaceful on this side
sunlight through the pines
tons of trees and shade over here..but went 20 feet underwater during hurricane Katrina
second part of the pond
Pop the yard man
the side yard is just beautiful and shady
one of the bridges
another lil bridge
That concludes our Ponderosa Land tour. Thank you for coming by and taking the tour. Please com'on back for when the mole hole tour is available and the car collection. Coming real soon!

Pastor Sharon said...

Now, that I've got that outtatheway. . . . I really think you live in southern heaven. . . the sunlight through the pines takes me to my old stomping grounds and I could totally smell the turpintine through this picture!
You have a lovely place!

Pastor Sharon said...

couldn't help it. . . feeling spunky. . . . wanted to be 3rd!

blognut said...

If she weren't a paster, I'd probably curse her for beating me by, like, 4 minutes or something.

I hate that.

blognut said...

And then I'd say - Great pictures, Dar!

blognut said...

And then I'd ask who that place really belongs to?

And if you ever get lost without leaving the yard?

blognut said...

And do you carry GPS when you go for a walk around the property?

Or leave a trail of bread crumbs?

blognut said...

Oh - I'm done now.

Bye bye!

Pastor Sharon said...

Blognut. . . I think I like you. . . and your spunk! I'm coming to find you!

Reddirt Woman said...

Now that PS and Blognut have taken a breath...

Too beautiful.

lizspin said...

Hit 40 said...

And I thought 11 people beat me!! It was just blognut and the pastor chilling at the ponderosa.

Did your house get flooded too???

darsden said...

OH my ya'll are cracking me up!

Pastor Sharon-beginning to wonder about you missy! Geaux on with your spunky self keep commenting me I love it. Yes, it was a pretty cool shot I thought too with the sun in the pines then I sang the willie nelson song about the sun through the pines! It is heaven on earth to me, I am soooo blessed! You will love blognut!

Blognut-man you had to wait in line tonight! Thank you kindly..and I would say well MICHEL it belongs to my folks and as long as I am pulling weeds I can stay.. I think or till my lease runs out! LOL funny you should ask...it is big enough I drove my car all around for these shots..too hot...too many chances of running into a snake by the pond in the woods and I don't do those types of mocs!

Reddirt Woman-they are acting spunky tonight you have to jump in quik..cuz you know otin isn't too far behind or hit 40! They have been a lil hoggie tonight Thank you very much I appreciate your sweet words.

Lizspin-she's sitting right here babee! Don't have to be a man to be a Hoss - LOL

Suzy said...

That's a gorgeous property...

Beth said...

20 feet under water?! Dang!

You have a gorgeous property!

dizzblnd said...

no wonder you are always so calm and relaxed (at least from what I've seen) That is one beautiful piece of paradise you have there.

I wish I could come visit. I know I'd never return here.

otin said...

I know that Mississippi is a large state, but does your family own all of it!? HAHA!

darsden said...

Hit 40 you must have been writing when I was writing..lol NO, we didn't get water in the house but you can see the hill the house is on and it was 6 inches from coming inside. You should see the video I took of it..unreal! No I can't share it...it is on my mothers old windows 98 computer with no cd rom..drive WTF.

Suzy-thankyou very much, hope you saw the first post it has the house my folks live in and the mole hole I dwell in.

dizzblnd-I try to be like that unless somebody is being rude to one of my bloggy friends then the mean comes out...ask Suzy and Vodka mom...I was mean to some people over at their sites that were rude to them. But yes it is very calming out here and with the birds adding their music..wonderful.

otin-roflmao...well,...I have more coming, they also have a lil camp I will be spot lighting soon..so maybe not all but a good chunk of it anyway...! Cribs II coming soon.

Joanna Jenkins said...

It looks like paradise! Thanks for the tour :-)

darsden said...

Joanna Jenkins-thank you for taking the tour, it is very enjoyable. The folks worked hard for it and creating it the way it is. I love being back here with them.

Greener Bangalore said...

Oh Darl! this place is amazingly green...loveee it!...

Greener Bangalore said...

Thank you sooo much for sharing that! Feels like i already seen the place...Thanks again.

Heidi said...

Wow, it's beautiful there.
I especially love the lil bridge as it reminds me of the home-made bridge Hus made us. Only ours is about half that width wide.LOL!

klutzymama said...

How beautiful! It looks so peaceful...

darsden said...

Greener Bangalore-your welcome and thank you for coming by for the tour. Hope you saw the one right before this one, it has several more shots.

Heidi-thank you very much, we have to be able to get the tractor, mower or my car across..yes I don't walk across it this time of year. Snakes

klutzymama-thank you very much, yes it is peaceful around here. Lil nature reserve :-)

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Absolutely beautiful. So peaceful looking! :)

Hubby and I have a thing for property with 'mature' trees...when we found our house (which was built in 1817) we were happy that the previous owners hadn't clear cut the land and left lots of great trees...when we eventually move, that's still at the top of the list. ;)

darsden said...

Stacy-thank you very much. Yes, the trees are beautiful, we had a lot more, but during hurricane Katrina we had a couple of tornado's come through, we lost over 300 hundred of them. I cried about them, of course compared to the ones that lost their houses and some of them their lives there is no comparison but none the less I felt the loss for them...especially the old oak trees..

Medora said...

Love the pond.

♥ Braja said...

OK, so you're just tryin' to annoy me, right? Cos this is beautiful and I'm supposed to have been there in September and and and and....

Oh damn. Anyway, I'm comin' soon, girl....count on it....

darsden said...

Braja-LOL no honey I just wanted to let you know what you are missing by not walking around here in the mornings with me. I know you will get here and I can't wait. I can't wait to serve you like the Queen you are my friend. But, you do need to see your family first after 9 years they do take priority..I will wait for you as long as it takes :-))

darsden said...

Braja-plus honey we need time to get the others here too..Vodka Mom, Ann's Rants, Suzy they need time too..so I think we better give them all time to get here.. I will pass the sleeping bags out...LOL we will have our own lil blogdar fest right here

Medora-dang I passed right over you I am sorry thank you, I love it too. I fish but I release them back they are our pets.

♥ Braja said...

Look out, Bangalore has arrived...is this a Mayapur vs Bangalore blog off? I think Mayapur wins. No wait: with IT, Bangalore wins, and since we're dealing with the techo field, he WINS. Dammit.

Wait...is this important?

♥ Braja said...

OK so to get this up to 50 I can see we're gonna have to work a bit. Blognut, Sharon, Jane---help me out here, huh?

♥ Braja said...

Jane, I agree: comments should be about anything.

So, if anyone's going to Bloomingdales soon, can you please go to the kitchenware department and see if they still have those gold leaf covered serving plates? I loved them. They were .... hell I dunno how much they were, but I can Paypal.

What?
