Do you have any woodland near your home?

Do you enjoy walks there? How often do you go?

Is there anything of interest to see there?

Is there anything edible growing in there and do you ever pick it to cook with?

Have any pics to share?

We have 16 acres, all wooded. We go on frequent walks and have smooth sumac trees with edible berries, some black walnut trees, some berry trees and not sure what else, still exploring the land

Ummm....there's woods a 20 minute drive away down a highway. No, we don't ever go for walks there unless we're camping in the area. There's a river there and part of it is open for swimming during the summer months. I'm sure there's edible stuff there, but you're not allowed to pick it since it's a state park.
I live on a military base and we're surrounded by farm land!

Do you have any woodland near your home?Not super close, but we have some parks around with trails and such

Do you enjoy walks there? How often do you go?we've only been once. If we don't have a new born next year we'll get a season pass

Is there anything of interest to see there? all kinds of stuff. the lake, old indian mounds (burrial mounds in our case) and cool stuff like that.

Is there anything edible growing in there and do you ever pick it to cook with? I wouldn't want to try.

Have any pics to share? I do, but I've never taken them off the camera, and don't know if I can! LOL. I don't know if Reme got any with his camera or not I'll have to check

Do you have any woodland near your home? We live on 5 acres, and about 3/4 of an acre of that, right next to our house, is wooded, and all of what is across our road in front of the house is wooded. We live in the middle of a section of the Mark Twain National Forest, so other than the cow pasture behind us, we are surrounded by woods.

Do you enjoy walks there? How often do you go? Not really, honestly. I don't like getting ticks that much. lol

Is there anything of interest to see there? Umm, not on our property, other than the gorgeous view we have. There are some really cool park areas around here, though, and the creeks are awesome to play/swim in during the summer.

Is there anything edible growing in there and do you ever pick it to cook with? Ummm...we have some wild berries. Other than that I have no idea. We just moved here 18 months ago, and the plants are a lot different than back in Nebraska.

Have any pics to share? Here is our view to the side (west)




This is our view across the road in front of our house, and what everything looks like around here. You can see a bit of the woods on our property.

Do you have any woodland near your home?
Wooded paths within walking distance. Real true woods about a half an hour away.

Do you enjoy walks there? How often do you go?
The local paths, frequently. Yes, we walk a lot. The proper woods, maybe once or twice in the summer. I'd like to go more but things get so hectic.

Is there anything of interest to see there?
The woodland we have nearest is at Rivington. There is Rivington Pike which is a hill which has a folly at the very top and a brilliant view over the area, nice for picnics. There are ruined walled gardens on one of the walks up which I love, very picturesque. There's a replica castle and a reservoir on one of the walks. There's also a tea room in one of the barns. And an arboretum on one of the walks. Nice place.

Is there anything edible growing in there and do you ever pick it to cook with?
You have to go up the walled garden way to find it, and I haven't in a long time and not sure if it's still the same. But there used to be blackberries, sloes, bilberries, horse chestnuts, nettles, and some mushrooms (though we never picked the mushrooms as were never sure if it was edible). We used to pick the fruit to make pies. I've since found blackberries and sloes in the wooded paths nearer to home.

Have any pics to share?
I don't think I do! Will take some next time we go.
