Another busy week and yet another week without home phone service -- well, not the whole week, just Monday morning through Thursday night :)
I don't have anything ready to share from the home swamp so I am posting a few pictures from the work swamp.
An inconspicuous wildflower from the work swamp...
You have to look closely to appreciate this one. Common anglepod - Gonolobus gonocarpus.
Not so inconspicuous fruit of the coral honeysuckle - Lonicera sempervirens.
I love this road. In fact, it's one of my favorites. What you can't see in this picture are the blackwater ditches on either side and the teeth-rattling holes hidden by the grass. I always drive slowly when I am patrolling this particular stretch. It would be embarrassing to end up in one of the ditches and besides, the bears like this road, too. Wouldn't want to hit one.
A well-used trail beside an enthusiastically marked tree. There's nothing subtle about a black bear :)
