blow down

Longleaf Lou and I walked our usual path from house to gate this morning. The short 1/3 of a mile gravel road was nearly covered over by small twigs, leaves and pine needles. I picked up a dozen or so branches and threw them off the road and into the woods.

My hair turned into a dark cloud of humidity-saturated frizz. The silver lining to living in a damp Florida forest is that it’s kind to aging skin. Hair not so much!

Birds, wasps, and other critters are not immune from losing their homes in a mid-winter rain and wind storm.

See the circle that used to be some critter’s front door?

  1. Funny you.

    Your photos are cool, especially the wasp nest as Stoner commented.

    You and Lou have an awesome area for your walk.

    I’m trying to blog frequently as you are. It’s funny how I can wonder what to write about and before I know it, something comes to me.
