I find it amusing that when I enter a timber area the first thing I do is survey the canopy. This was brought on by a sudden crack one morning as I cleaned up a dead fall.
The foot diameter rotten branch landed about 10 paces away from me, but has left an everlasting impression on my will to survive.Mother Nature is a stern teacher.

I enjoyed your article. I recall a vast stand of stinging nettle in that area but it is a little early to be concerned about that. I hope all is well with you, Julie, and that special place.

I really enjoyed this, it's great that you share your thoughts.
