My daily walks get longer as it gets cooler (though today they say it will be in the 80's! I'll believe it when I feel it), but keeping an eye on things seen before is fun.
This is what happened to the mushroom family.
The way they shred out as they open makes me want to try eating one so much - but I won't. I definitely need a mycologist up here someday!
|This little one is still bravely blooming|
|You just keep me hanging on...|
|Surprising me, no rain came from this very dramatic cloud|
|Sadly, there aren't many of these particular pines left as a nasty beetle|
has made inroads, killing many of them
|Unfortunately, this tree was a victim of the beetles|
so when the wind came it was just weak enough to break
|Things get done up here much like they do at home!|
|It took a few truck tugs to bring it down|
|Did you know the smell of pine sap deters cottonmouth snakes?|
|All piled up for someone to use AFTER the fire ban is lifted|
Falling in love with trees is sort of like having fun with balloons; it is best to keep in mind it's a temporary pleasure. Damn you, Shel Silverstein!
The moon is still pretty glorious in rising. Keep your eyes open tonight!
Have a treerific Tuesday! Do something totally tingly.
