Pulled

Potted, Planted, Pulled. We have a theme going with titles here. Everything is plant related recently. I hope you’re enjoying it because it’s what I have going on right now.

I’m still plucking away at Assassin’s Quest by Robin Hobb. It’s 700+ pages and I’m only sitting down to read it once or twice a week.

This past weekend was the last Saturday to go harvest invasive species at the local fen. I went the week before that however a thunderstorm rolled in. It was the day after a tornado hit the town where I grew up, so I wasn’t so trusting that Mother Nature would be gentle even though another volunteer claimed that, “We’re here to help Mother Nature, she will take care of us.” I bailed.

Pretty field, yes? This is the plant we were pulling. Beautiful, but invasive, Dame’s Rocket.

After that, we spent the entire Memorial Day weekend with Mr. and Mrs. Moth at their place. We bowled, we partied, we ate fantastic food, and we had a drunken night in the hot tub. It was exactly what we needed.

When was your last forest adventure and what was your favorite thing that you saw?

Autumn Adventure

I have finally gotten around to uploading some of my pictures from when we went up north for opening day of bow hunting season. My husband is the hunter, not I. I prefer to wander around, soaking in nature and adventuring with the dogs. This was just after Ozzy got his staples removed and he was ready to get out and stretch his legs.

We head back up there mid-November for rifle season. Knowing the area, I will be coming back with snow pictures then. Hope you enjoyed these. 🙂

Playing in the Forest

If you’ve never played in the forests of Northern Michigan, you should take the time one day and really give it a try. I went back to my old hometown of Gaylord, MI this past weekend to visit my dad for his birthday. It was a weekend to be all about him and what did he want to do? Go two-tracking in the forest. Something we used to do on a regular basis when we moved to the area and knew no one. And since I had been feeling a severe lack of nature in my life recently, I was all too happy to oblige.
