It’s time of year for the Japanese Stilt Grass in the yard to bloom. Kind of hard to get all wound up about having a perfect yard when the deer graze on it in the middle of the day routinely anyway.

Same stuff grows down in the creek bottom and I don’t even have to plant, fertilize, or mow it.

The ferns my wife buys in hanging pots always seem to struggle and need some sort of tedious care but these that look exactly the same just grow all by themselves on the north facing slopes in shady areas,

Then there was this perfect mushroom. Wasn’t there at all the day before. Rate of growth of mushrooms is amazing.

Stiltgrass doesn't bloom, the blooming stuff looks like Smartweed/lady’s thumb (Polygonum spp.)
Thanks. Somebody told me it was stiltgrass but they weren’t an expert and I’m not either. I just mow it when it’s high enough to hide snakes. 🙂

went on a photo tour with Slonina Photograpy in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. After shooting bunches of landscape and wildlife pics, I happened on this neat shot

We visited Cade’s Cove in the Smokies a couple years ago and ran across this little guy on the side of the road. Wife wanted to get out of the truck to get a better pic. Not knowing where the sow was, convinced her to stay in the truck and get a little lower quality pic from further away. Never did see the sow and I was OK with that.

Very nice pic!

Wide Glide? Been away from HD's for a while....

Bet she barks with the short-shots...

Sold my 2005 FXDI a couple years ago. With some intake and exhaust improvements, etc., it barked pretty well, too.
Yessssir, it’s a 2010 Wide glide. She’s loud as hell lol and still likes to stand up in the air, even with the hard tail, shame you sold it. I hope To keep this to give to my son someday

Yesterday was scouting for a good spot to set a ground blind on my property for possible cross bow hunting next fall. Had this close encounter with this doe and young buck about a half hour before sunset. The doe was as close as 5 yards, the buck 4 yards. Both were well aware of me sitting in the Jeep but never took flight, just kind of wandered away.
