It's B-b-b-back

 
Remember the nature alphabets? Remember the letter B? It's now almost unreadable.

The top of the B has gotten fuller and taller. The serifs are growing.

Here it is in 2010.

Here it is when I first used it as the letter in 2009

I like the white pines so much. I planted all of these myself. The tallest were less than a foot high when I put them out in 1992.

This clump has started producing babies on its own. There are now three little ones beside my trail that I did not plant. I first found these in 2014, but now they are clearly seen above the grass.

In other news: I skied yesterday and today, but the snow was much better today. Other than that it's been all editing. I'm over 2/3 of the way through Dead Mule Swamp Druggist for what I hope will be the last time.

That "B" looks like it's been eating well :)

It is interesting how plants, shrubs and trees grow. Should we say, "Bye bye" to B?
