Been Wet Lately

We took advantage of a brief respite in the rain the other day to take a bit of a walk around the place - Dino wanted to stretch his legs and get in his daily exercise and I wanted to see the Chowchilla run big (or at least bigger).  Naturally, I was unable to resist the call of a new image and got left behind to twiddle with the Canon at leisure.

That is the skull of Heather, whose bones we found in Lion Creek around the fungus-ridden area we call Chanterelle Knoll a year ago (maybe two years ago). The skull and the few bones still left there are moved around from time to time by the critters.

Dino has been focusing on the shop building the last couple of weeks, whenever it's not wet and/or windy. Weather has been cooperating fairly well: things are progressing nicely.

Oh heck, one more shot. Ladder against side of building:

Nature report: We've got Pine Siskins this year. They skipped our place last winter, but Dino tells me we've got vast quantities, this based on direct observation plus the fact that the seed is disappearing at a heavy rate.
