In his comment yesterday, Pablo wondered how the heavy rains of Friday night had changed the pond puddle. The top photo is last week before the rain. The second picture is Saturday morning. For the small fish surviving in the pond, their world has tripled and the heron will have to work harder.
A while back, I wrote about the Girdle Tree, (not to be confused with either type of Thong Tree.) At the time I was taking the slow route in letting some light into my little shooting range. The girdled tree slowly weakened, and even though it was a terrifically boring hurricane season, the tree did fall as planned. The picture above is from the backside of the range (outside of the actual range and behind the berm).
(Opposite end, looking into the range)
Last winter, when the heat of summer dissipated and it was fun to be digging and messing around in the woods, Jr. took over my range (he asked first). He and his buds used a bunch of old junk picket fence, branches, palm fronds, and some poor man backhoes to convert my range into a paintball fortress.
As soon as the fort was completed, they promptly lost interest and moved on to some new endeavor.
The range was actually still useable, but then the girdle tree finally fell filling it in with a maze of branches. I'm cleaning it up this weekend.
So, this is the before picture.
I'll post an after picture after.
First though, I'm going grocery shopping. ( I told you this was mundane) I'm in the mood to BBQ something ...
... what are you in the mood for?
