Faces in NaturePosted: June 28, 2012
Have you found a face in nature for Bearyweather’s Find a Face in Nature challenge yet? I keep finding faces in the images of the rocks from Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick. Since Bearyweather didn’t specify it had to be a human face, I decided to use this image for the challenge.
What do you see? (I’ll let you know what I see after the break.)
I see a bird with its beak open on the left. And a dinosaur with a horn on the right.
I dared to venture into the woods yesterday. It’s been so dry that the mosquitoes are not a problem. The deer flies, however, are as obnoxious as ever. Fortunately, they seem to shun the shade so they weren’t a problem in the woods as long as I avoided sunny spots.
We need rain. Badly. The earth in the woods is dry and cracked, a condition I don’t recall seeing back there since it’s usually boggy. We’ve been watering what’s left of the vegetables in our garden. Apparently the critters don’t care for tomatoes, Swiss chard, or hot peppers of any kind (we planted several varieties). They’ve eaten all of the sweet/bell pepper plants, along with the broccoli and lettuces.
That’s it from the Bogs for today. Thanks for stopping by. Try to stay cool. There’s a heat advisory in effect for parts of this area. Tomorrow might be a little better (in the 80s rather than 90s).
The woods are not a bad place to hang out. It’s relatively cool back there. But be sure to put on plenty of insect repellent. You have to walk through deer fly territory to get there.
