Exploring our woods

We bought this house in August, and now, the last day of the year, we are finally exploring the woods. It was too hot/buggy/brambly/rainy earlier, but today was clear and sunny, so we gave it a shot!

Setting out:
Into the woods:
 
Look what we found! We spotted this in the fall (had no idea it was there when we bought the house! We think it will become our apiary...the floor, steps and railings are good, the walls are deteriorated, but the bees won't care!


At the end of the property:


I was hoping to spot some blueberry canes or other goodies, but no luck.  We did find several downed trees that *someone* can chop into a huge pile of firewood, though!
