On my morning walk today I found this offering in the middle of the path. They are hawthorn berries.
Very pretty I think.
The cows and calves were enjoying the quiet morning. I love that huge cottonwood tree in the background.
A few weeks ago when I was walking here, I heard a rustling rumbling sound coming from the forest and I thought "What is that noise? The cows shouldn't be in there. Sounds like a big animal, maybe an elk crashing through the woods?" Then this huge alder tree came falling down, right where I had been about to walk. I have never seen a tree spontaneously fall down with no wind or logger to help it. It is on the neighbor's property and they have been working on cutting it up for firewood. I like the way the red alder shows why it is named so. When a fresh tree is cut up it bleeds red.
This is a big old stump with new trees growing up out of it. I climbed it once and looked inside, it is hollow. If I ever have to hide from someone, I might run here and get in. You might be able to see how the cows have rubbed on that long snakey root piece and made it all shiny.
I love leaves. This heart shaped one is a cottonwood.
But I love my little Roscoe Bean even more. Who could resist this face?
The Good and The Bad - This is the one good thing that happened today. She was standing right next to the road as we left the lane this morning. Bad thing is Mr. Magic was tak...
