We've been busy around here,
taking down the holidays, and getting back to normal...
or what we call normal.
One busy chore we've had is seeds.
Millions and millions of seeds.
You see, we live under a lot of Cedar Elms.
Usually, I'm whining about all the leaves. Usually, the fall brings TONS of
We sweep them up and pile them in the beds as mulch and in the compost bin...
which is really a 'leaf rotting' bin.
The deer don't leave green stuff in there long enough to compost.
Yeah, I know...we could wire it off...but....
Anyway...the trees also have seeds. Those seeds usually fall in October.
Not this year.
This year they started falling in late November.
And, we have a bumper crop.
They can't be put in the beds or compost.
All of those seeds will turn into little Cedar Elms.
Millions and millions of Cedar Elms.
We'll have enough that will have to be dug up,
just from the ones that fall into the beds.
So, we sweep them up and carry them to the Deer Grove.
The deer like them, and so do the squirrels.
Those in these photos fell in one day.
That's the porch and deck.
Didn't get a photo of the driveway...
But, it's almost over.
We'll have a short leaf break, and then the Live Oaks will start
doing their thing.
I still love the trees...
By the way...
Can you believe January is almost half over?
