Not a lot to report on today. Bob did go on a longish bike ride to Spider Bight, which I learned is another word for a bay, I think.
So I'm going to share some of my pictures of things around here. I'll put names of things that I know in a caption that you can see if you hover or click on a picture.
We have learned all about mahogany on this trip. I saw so many little pieces of a wood-like material on the ground. It's hard, brown, shaped like an oval with a point on each end. I could not figure out where they were coming from! Finally, it all came together for me today.
The first picture shows the seed pod growing on the tree. #2 is a seed pod that has fallen on the ground and cracked or popped open. Finally, you can see the inside of the pod is layer upon layer of fragile little seeds that are light enough to be blown around. The pieces of husk just stay there and turn darker brown. The seeds remind me of a dandelion pod when it's popped open and the seeds float off.
The birds around here are hard at work cleaning up stuff the humans leave behind. Nothing dead or rotten or smelly is safe from the turkey vultures!
Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate the time you have taken to look for and read my story. I hope you find something that you like!
Hi! I'm Pam! Join me on this journey through the next steps of life!
