Miscellaneous Goodies

I spent all afternoon working on the trails at Shagway Arts Barn, and I did finish all the clearing and trimming. Big job. Here's one space before.

And the same space after I trimmed it. A lot of the vegetation there is nasty invasives like autumn olive. But at least I don't have to be careful about how I trim. Just hack away. I can only wish that careless pruning would kill this stuff. Shagway has about a mile of little loops that are open to hike- just a pleasant stroll.

Look what's happening in my little jugs! So far so good. When they begin to get some of the real leaves I'll thin them.

And Josh stopped by to bring me a little Mother's Day gift. These are interesting. Look closely. The petals are made of wood! Josh is doing really well at the present time. His health is pretty good and he has a job. Those are big plusses.

I wrote in the morning and did laundry, and worked on trails all afternoon. I'm bushed. Bed and a book are coming right up.

That looks like a lot of work clearing those trails.
The flowers are pretty. I like the color
