On our nightly drive we have a tree that we watch.
We call it the Eagle Tree. One night there were two Baldies up there.
We noticed this near our driveway.
It looks like a small shrub like Oak Tree with a bunch of berries or some kind of gall? I am not certain and I cannot find an answer.
Whilst carving on the Christmas Ornaments we noticed that we were missing something. A sound that we usually hear this time of year. Acorns dropping off trees onto the steel roof on the woodshed…most summers we have plenty to drop and this year there a few to none in our yard. What ever will the squirrels eat?
We are making progress on the Christmas ornaments. We have 45 completely done and more parts are on my desk because Far Guy carved like a maniac all weekend. The goal is 80 so we are over half way!! Someone asked why do you do them in the summer? We can make a mess with the woodchips and sawdust outside. Most days it is nice to sit outside and work in the afternoon, a nice breeze makes it even better. Far Guy power carves some of the parts and that raises some dust (He wears a mask and sometimes uses a fan to blow the dust away).
