Wicked Walk 3/11/2015

I’m not sure what is has been like in your neck of the woods but here in deep east Texas it has been raining.  And raining.  And raining.  We have had a river flood warning for 6 days in a row.  It is perfectly silly.  I walked on this day in tall muck boots and a slicker.  You can see how much I love you, my readers, by this.  Otherwise I’d have stayed in bed and not peered outside all day.  I’m glad I didn’t!

Here is what I saw.

walk birdThe bluebird of happiness.  It was flying away but no matter.

walk mossBecause this rain-dotted moss was right underneath!

walk fungiwalk mosswalk vineNo matter the weather I can pretty much count on moss, fungi and little vines!

And the train trestle, I don’t think its going anywhere.

walk trainUnless it floats off…..

walk train fungiI was thinking on this and studying the fungi when I spotted this HUGE slug!

walk slugHe was perfectly awesome and like a true gentleman, very shy!

walk slugHe’d BARELY poke both eyes out at the same time!  I felt like I was in Epic!  Only I don’t want to be known as a stomper.

You have no idea what I’m talking about?  Then you must not have wee urchins.  Great movie, Epic.

Like a modern day Fern Gully only less scary and less depressing.

walk slugIs he not cool?

The thistle, a good 40 paces from the creek bank, is meanwhile drowning.

???????????????????????????????Water, water EVERYWHERE!

walk creekThis isn’t the creek.

walk creekNeither is this.

walk fungiAll the dampness makes for great fungi growth though!

walk funi???????????????????????????????And check out this vine below!

I felt like I was gripping the arm of a baby Bigfoot!

They SAY he lives around here ya’ know….

I think those Bigfoot hunters even did a show down at the river a few years ago.

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Sorry Guys, I think you were seeing vines!

I then saw my food plot…..

walk woodsAll that water…….crazy.

walk cloverThe clover I planted seems to love it though!

walk birdAnd look!  The bluebird of happiness came back!

Stay warm, stay dry and don’t let the bird of paradise fly up your nose!
