Hello! Look for future posts about my "observations" Lord knows I am always making observations, movie reviews, whenever I see a movie I want to talk about, or I may just vent my frustrations...who knows?

Baby Pines

Went out for my morning stroll in the woods behind my house and as is my wont, I brought along my camera. Sadly it’s overcast and the morning sun wasn’t out to create any really cool effects among the trees but it was an enjoyable walk all the same.

Even though I didn’t get to see any dramatic scenes I got a few pics. Was looking at all the baby pine trees around. I’ve often thought that if I were to leave my property and no other human would show up, that within a decade you’d be hard pressed to see my house for the trees (within two decades for sure!)

This little guy is now about three inches tall....

It’s growing near the base of this mighty pine. Not sure how tall it is but it’s got to be more than 5 foot around at the base (didn’t think to bring my tape measure)

Had to back off to attempt to get a shot of the top of the tree:

I counted around two dozen baby pines in this shot. Granted they’re all too close together for each one to grow up to their full size.

I kinda wish I could have gotten a shot of some of the wildlife around here but they’re too fast for me. I stepped out the back door and a big gray squirrel scampered up the hickory tree next to the house but he was too well hidden in the branches to get a good pic of him. I think he and some of his buddies may be having war. I’ve been hearing hickory nuts banging against my sister’s house next door since last night. If I can hear them in my house I KNOW she’s getting an ear full.
