In response to the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/a-plot-of-earth/
You’re given a plot of land and have the financial resources to do what you please. What’s the plan?
Given a plot of land? Where is this land? How big is it? And just who gave this land to me? And I have the financial resources to do what I please? With the land? Or in general? What’s the plan? How can I know what the plan is without seeing this so-called plot of land in said unknown location? Once more, there seem to be a lot of unanswered questions that need answering before I can make these kinds of decisions.
Quite frankly, if I were to have these mysterious financial resources, I think I would use them to finish fixing up our house first rather than working on a random plot of land. But thanks for the offer!
Speaking of plots of land, here is some in our backyard we are slowly working on. Still lots to do, but there are plants (purposefully planted last year) starting to come up (Yay! They survived the “winter”) and you can expect lots of close-ups of the yard and the changes it will be undergoing over the course of the year.
(this is the before)

Indeed! I have plenty of land. Why would I want more unspecified land? (To be fair, lots of people aren’t fortunate enough to have land, so I kind of get where this prompt is coming from.)
I could certainly use some of those mythical unlimited resources to do the things I need to do to the land I already have.
Many more shots will be demanded. I was about to wax lyrical when I realized that the wonderful ‘climber’ (more likely to be a creeper) that looks just like a white hardenbergia has been rooted out ! Pore thang …
Are you talking about the clematis vine on the tree in the first picture? That’s the “after” shot – it’s definitely still there (and only just over a year old) and about to pop out in scads of gorgeous blooms!
I need to check my eyes …
