There always seems to be a mushroom or 10 growing somewhere in my yard, but this year I’ve had a bumper crop of them.  They always seem different and I have no idea how or why they suddenly start growing. Just before cutting my lawn the other day, I snapped a few pictures of some… Continue reading Mushrooms

More Branches and Chester

It seems I have another pile of branches in my yard.  Of course, I did it myself with the work of my little pruning saw, since all my trees desperately need pruning.  These one will be cut and bundled and out with the next yard waste pickup though.
