    You have a lovely piece of land there!

    What is the blue building behind the tree there?

    That is a very handy skill to have!
    I like that shed... I'm one of those people that goes to view a property and want to see the barn before the house :hide They are just so useful!

    You've got some lovely trees there too.

    ETA: Nice rabbit set-up!
