A plot of earth

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: You’re given a plot of land and have the financial resources to do what you please. What’s the plan?

I love animals. I would build a large barn and have a couple of horses. I used to ride when I was a child, and I took lessons into my adult years, but I’ve been unable to do that for some time now. The barn would not be just for the horses; I would love to be able to house cats there as well. I would take in unwanted cats (spayed and neutered, of course), up to 20 or 25.

My next project would be a chicken coop. This structure would have to be fenced in due to the aforementioned cats. A garden would also be a necessity – actually, several, since I’d have an herb garden (filled with thyme, mint, oregano, rosemary, parsley, and lavender), a vegetable garden (tomatoes, cucumbers, garlic, lettuce, peppers, to name a few), and a flower garden. I would hope that the land had firs on it – I love pine trees.

There would be dogs as well – one cannot live without at least one dog – and maybe a few other creatures.

There would be a lake in which the dogs and I could swim. I would try to make the land as lush and green as possible, along with a home that could hold any friends that would visit. This is my dream.

    • Lets put pictures up this spring. I am planning on exploring my connection to my little garden. I had become disconnected from nature. The need to connect to the natural processes and my roots bubbled up out of me some years ago. It began with making wine. I had usually grown a tomato or some basil in a pot but and couple years ago I got a little more serious about a little vegetable garden. Have been experimenting with containers and a raised bed.


  1. I always thought if I won the lottery and got a huge piece of land, I would have a animal rescue place and would hire a full time vet (or 2 or 4) to help take care of the animals. This would be a no kill shelter. Geez with us living in the country we have dump animals so I have been a rescue site of sorts!
