I apologize for not posting yesterday because I’ve been too busy doing a few chores around the house. Either way, here’s a picture of something that I found in our backyard that I forgot to put up on my blog the other day:
It was a very tall seeding dandelion. It’s about three feet tall, and has a large supply of umbrella seeds on the dandelions forming a big white puffball:
This flower smells really nice just like all the other flowers in the world of nature. I’m deeply in love with these kind of flowers. 🙂
My family and I went to go visit the Willamette National Forest earlier this afternoon to check out the fire damage from there because we had a couple of major wildfires that burned a bunch of acres back in 2017 and 2018 due to lightning strikes and/or people who ignite fires. Here are a few pictures of various trees that got charred after the 2017 wildfires:
We got really lucky back then because the fire was heading towards our town after burning about 50,000 acres from the Horse Creek Complex and Jones fires but the firefighters and heavy rains have managed to put out the fiery blaze of destruction for good.
Oh, and while we were heading back home I activated my camera and snapped a picture of a squirrel at the edge of the road minding its own business:
Yep, that is one cute squirrel with a nice fluffy tail. 🙂
Yesterday I’ve been working on a DIY nature experiment lately:
What I did there is I used an empty cocoa powder container, fill it up with some water and then carefully add some seeding dandelions one at a time without knocking any parachute seeds off the puffballs so that the dandelions will be quenched with water in order to last a little longer like all other flowers. 🙂
Oh, and speaking of nature, I was out back pulling up a few more weeds and picked up a lot of fallen leaves off the ground just to tidy up our backyard a bit. Then after I got all that done my family and I enjoyed some exquisite submarine sandwiches that we ordered from a Subway restaurant. At least the food from Subway is far better than the food from McDonald’s.
I took a picture of some kind of weed flower a few days ago at about 1 o’ clock in the afternoon after getting all ready for that day. I found this extremely tall seeding dandelion that was located in our backyard next to a chain-like fence between our backyard and our neighbors’:
This dandelion is about three feet tall. It has a lot of tiny parachute seeds that form a good-sized white puffball that has a really nice smell to it:
That’s a few good reasons why I love these kind of flowers: Super tallness, large puffballs and their smell. 😀 But right now we’re trying to decimate as many dandelions and other tall weed flowers as possible by putting down some poisonous weed killer on them so they can droop little by little at a time and die. Oh, on another note our lawnmower men showed up earlier this morning and finally managed to mow down lots of tall weeds in our neighbors’ backyard after they finished mowing our lawn. At least they solved our weed problem because now we have less weeds to kill. 🙂
