These galls on my grapevine are probably the work of some insect or mite. I haven't looked them up yet, or cut one open to seek out it's secret. Most galls are harmless and this grape vine seems to be vigorous and healthy.
Every time I look at this picture I get a strong urge to eat candy corn while listening to an early Madonna CD.
While mule deer are mostly a western species, like the coyote, they seem to be colonizing the east. I photographed this one in my neighbor's neat woodlot.
I try not to mow the front yard too often. This aggravates my wife who likes things neater and really dislikes damp grass as she walks out to her car each morning.
I'm not sure what the big deal is about a little damp grass ... it's probably a girl thing.
Enjoy your laborless day!
