A Flock of Hens Cross the Street
I was lucky enough to catch these hens stopping traffic on Route 130 yesterday as they crossed the street and disappeared in to the Autumn foliage on the other side of the street.
We’ve now made the acquaintance of one female eastern wild turkey. It was hard to judge her size because she made sure to keep me at a distance, but according to the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department she should weigh about ten pounds. [click to continue…]
I noticed several plants in my backyard a few weeks ago with buds that looked like they were ready to flower any day. I shot a few photos as they matured and eventually was able to match my photos with images and descriptions that I found online.

I took a stroll in the woods with my dogs today and was excited to find some sassafras trees!
They are unusual trees because they have three distinct leaf patterns on the same plant, unlobed oval, bilobed (mitten-shaped), and trilobed (three-pronged). They can have five-lobed leaves, too, but that is very rare. [click to continue…]
