I just spent 20 minutes in the backyard, pulling vines off the fence that I hope aren't poison ivy. I guess we'll know within a few hours, but so far so good.
I found a couple of things on the ground while I was pulling vines.
This piece of metal.
This piece of glass (lots of glass, actually, but this was the only piece that was at all pretty. Why oh why do people do that?).
And this orange fungus growing on a tree stump.
We also have some fairly aggressive and hungry squirrels. I guess one creates the other.
A mushroom that's grown because of all the rain.
And a tomato plant that I doubt is going to make it (my fault).
Also, these pretty purple flowers that have gotten a bit drowned in all our rain.
How's your backyard? Good? Mine needs a lot of work. I'm not sure I'm the right person for the job, but I'll give it a try - slowly and probably not this year. Until then, I'll just keep my eye out for what makes my backyard special and try to build on that.
