We've had so much rain lately that everything is growing in abundance, especially our weeds. Not so much knapweed. I think it likes the drier weather, actually hot and dusty. Right now they are green and tender shoots that you can even pull.
I like this old rotted stump. Its so serene and peaceful looking. This is where the deer and moose come down to irritate the dogs I think. Its just on the other side of our back fence. We've never fenced it off, really no need to right now. And we like the wildlife using it and keeping it as natural as possible. A logger friend really cleaned it up a few years ago, getting rid of all the dead, dying and down trees. Most of it got used for firewood.
A nice way to clean house!
Of course its always more meaningful for me at 2am than during the next day. But ... you never know.
Tomorrow is supposed to be 80 something. We were enjoying nice weather until last week when it turned very cold (40-50's) and rained. Did I say rain? You can bet it didn't stop for several days.
This next week rain will be back, but only for about three more days. Then summer. We always have a nice couple months right after the 4th of July. Let's hope that happens this year too.
