Tragopogon dubius-Yellow Goat’s Beard!
No photography today. I archived 3 months of images…still have March through May to go…and split a bunch of next winter’s heat. Hydraulic splitter not a maul, but it’s hot and still feels like work. Once I finish the rest of the logs, I have a big pile in the woods that was just taken down this past week and which has to come out and get stacked for splitting next Spring/Summer. Despite the hundreds and thousands of pieces of wood that get tossed into the wood stove, I actually do remember many of them from splitting and stacking. Sometimes a log does not want to be split and the resulting pieces are quite distinctive. And, as it’s do it yourself, many of the pieces are nice and small and fairly clean cut as I also split some down to kindling size for a good supply of starters. And…while splitting I was host to my first tick in a while as I don’t wear my photography togs to do yard work. But one ain’t bad and I got it off and into the toilet quickly. They can swim and you have to place a piece of tissue on them to be sure they go down with the water. Don’t want one crawling back up and giving you a bite on the bottom.
