The Only Wildflowers Around
So what I have for you today is the only wildflowers for very many miles around. Actually I don't mean that these particular flowers are the only ones, but what I mean is that this is the only kind I can find anywhere around here. I haven't seen another kind of wildflower for about twenty five miles. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough, but that's my story, until it changes.
I guess I could do a little research to find this butterfly's name, but I'm just too lazy to do it anymore.
Well, if you insist!
I decided to check around and found out that the name of this guy is a Red Admiral (Vanessa Atalanta). I knew that! At least I used to. It came back to me as soon as I saw the name. It's good to know the name. Now I'm happy.
I keep the place looking like an unkempt jungle. The tall weeds hide the junk that my dad collected over the years. I'd get rid of the junk, but I have no idea what to do with it. I'm not exactly close to a place where I can dispose of some of these things. Besides I like everything looking like a jungle. It's so natury.
Some of my neighbors probably hate me for that, but that's okay because I'm meaner than them. I also have giant piles of firewood everywhere. At least one neighbor doesn't mind that because we share that part. My dad taught him to burn wood for heat several years ago and now he loves doing it that way. Maybe one of these times I'll show you my huge outdoor wood stove. It's a technological marvel that my dad built. I'll talk to you later.
