mud season arriving, tuesday afternoon

a woman and her dog
what the porcupine did
maple sap from the injury above
it's coming
it IS
wuh-hoo!

although there is little mud here, there is plenty of punky snow and accumulated detritis. and yesterday morning i saw the porcupine falumphing out of the yard and into the woods. i didn't get a photo, though, because i also smelled skunk and wasn't sure where it was. never surprise or annoy a skunk.

It is coming...it is!
And always leave a skunk before he stamps his feet.

The pictures are beautiful... I've never seen a porcupine or the damage they do to the trees. Does it kill the tree?

a skunk has to "aim", raise tail, and bend head to one side looking back at the victim. then lookout! apparently the head bend is part of the mechanism for firing.

I posted up a woman and dog pic at the weekend!

There must be a lot of us truding through the mud in various parts of the world!
