But let's change it anyway!!!!
This morning (pre-dawn) I was out on the deck and discovered a female toad who had come to pay a visit. My deck is off the ground and this was a bit unusual. I am convinced that she came to apologize for the rounds of tadpoles in my dog's pool!
Black walnuts.....are currently the scourge of the earth. My neighbor has a tree, which hangs over the yard. The nuts are everywhere (take that however you wish). We pick them up because they tend to dull our lawnmower blade.
I remember as a child my grandmother used to love to find a place to collect them, and then they would go in our driveway. After a while, the green stuff would be gone and then she would collect them again. The hammer came out. I don't know how many hours of labor it took, but there was a lot of it. These went into my great-grandmother's receipe for Fruitless Fruitcake.
I avoid the nuts and the fruitloops!
