I do not know what this plant is called. I haven’t yet looked it up, either. But I do recognize it now!
DO NOT TOUCH!!
Unsolicited advice: Do not brush up against it with your bare ankle or leg. Do not drag your forearm across it when picking flowers. And definitely do NOT sit on it when taking photos! Actually, avoid sitting on it in any situation 😉
Where did “they” come up with the idea of green and red as the colors for Christmas?

I loved the look of both of the greenbrier photos and really couldn’t choose between them. Here is the second one.
I think it just barely edges out the prior one as my favorite.
Which do you prefer, the one from January 16th or this one from today, January 18th?

There he goes! He has a hidey-hole nearby, and he is going to crouch down in it and hope you will not see him.
Surely you won’t notice that thick tail sticking out of the hole, or you will just mistake it for a stick.
Bridger’s favorite detail of the armadillo was its hairy little tummy.
This is the little guy who thought he was hidden in yesterday’s post. If you didn’t know what he was yesterday, perhaps it is more obvious today 🙂
The other day I was out in a very still woods, just walking quietly on a marvelous, soft trail made by my husband and son. I heard leaves crunching, a slight scurrying, a humming/grunting sound…
Then, once the little hummer noticed me, he ran for his hidey-hole. Can you see him? Can you identify him?
The summer was so dry in Oklahoma that we were worried we wouldn’t have any leaves left by autumn.

You can see for yourself, there are still a few leaves, especially on tough trees like these Hackberries. Wait! There is a hackberry tree growing around and above this one, but these leaves are those of the native wild plum.
We have not been overwhelmed with rain. The soil is still dry and dusty.

But we have had cool enough weather that the dew point was higher than the ambient temperature, resulting in a pleasant silvery mist at dawn.
