11 summer days to catch up on  
I've had trouble getting on the internet lately and that's why I haven't posted here in 11 days.

It's my favorite time of the year so I've been doing a lot, including scouting out the blackberries, which look very promising this year. I want to start picking them out near Jamestown beginning this coming weekend.

I also harvested the flowerheads of many cattails, even though I learned how after most of them had blown away. (They are little bundles of pollen that become porous and powdery so they must be gathered before this happens or there won't be anything to take home). In this picture they are the green tail above the main larger brown cattail:



I also finally rode my motorcycle to Columbus over the weekend, and got to see Ed who is here from Jacksonville for a few days.
