Hey, just a few images of what’s around the yard.  Apple blossoms always nice to see but I missed the best by a day ( no phone on me at the time).

Bees are busy.

I just finished putting on the mower deck.  I treated the bottom with old candle stubs found in dumpsters. I used a heat gun and melted the candles onto the exposed metal surfaces. Hopefully this will keep grass from sticking and rusting the underside or the mower

At the expense of looking like a tourist I took these 3 photos showing one small, little, lonely Maple tree most likely overlooked by the hordes of park visitors wanting to shoot “fall colours”. Male maple tree leaves turn red (shown) while female leaves turn bright orange-yellow but check these facts – I’m not a botonist.

All photos of the same tree.

You can see this on Instagram too:

A really quick post, since it has been a few months since I posted anything.  It’s not that there is nothing that I think is interesting to post, just that I’ve been busy on other website work and carpentry projects.

I’ve been using the excuse that I have used my twitter account to post neat stuff.  This goes against my idea of resisting the “shiny object syndrome” or SOS that inflicts North American society.

I fail myself.  The links are on the left in the twitter feed 🙁

I thought I’d spread the word about another website that I’d found.  22 May, 2015 is tomorrow.  Each year they have a theme and some of the previous years have good information on different aspects of biodiversity.
