Ends and Odds

Ends: I am not sure if I showed a similar shot last year after Hurricane Dorian. During the hurricane I lost three apple trees and a few branches from a lilac. When the lilac stump was sawed off properly, we found that the heartwood was lilac coloured. Recently a raccoon climbed the lilac and went out on a small branch to steal grapes and cherries from a fruit feeder hanging on it. The branch broke and the branch removal again showed the4 lilac coloured heartwood. It does fade with time.

 

Odds: A rock on the beach with a hole drilled in it. It probably was once on the bank where someone likely drilled a hole for a sewer pipe for a cottage, a practice of the long ago past.

Thank you for the Odds & Ends... interesting photos and stories!
Care MacADNski: I love how we get opportunities to learn every day.
Its like an onion in the branch... I used to find rocks at the place I bought them from ( for the garden ) that had holes in them, or half holes, they were where the shots were used to break them away from a rock face. You were lucky to find a perfect one and as you were paying by weight, it was cheaper, result ! smile
Care MacADNski: Holes are sometimes drilled for handling but usually smaller. This was the size of a sewer pipe, clay in the old days. None of that happens now, thankfully.

My son's home has huge stones surrounding it that have some of those holes you are talking about. They were there when he bought the house and look very nice.

That evokes a "Wow"!
Care MacADNski: The branch after Dorian was a much larger branch but I did not show it then. We learn something new every day.

it's quite extraordinary

i hate it for the tree, but glad i could view it through your lens
Care MacADNski: I am in a three year process of trimming that lilac. A bit of the timing fell awry after the hurricane but the tree will benefit in the end.
Dommage pour l'arbre mais les couleurs sont très belles.
Care MacADNski: I was quite amazed at the colour.

Such a pity this tree was lost but it could have been worse, the storm could have blown your cats away!

That is just amazing, Care and I never knew. Now I wonder if the inside is what the flowers get the colours from.
That is quite the hole to drill all the way.
Care MacADNski: This is a white lilac. I wonder if this is the case with other varieties. I loved discovering it.
I like your ends and odds Care
Care MacADNski: Everything is flowers these days.

Great finds Care.
Care MacADNski: I will search for more.
I like both pictures and what a good idea to match them together in one presentation.
Care MacADNski: In a time of flowers, anything else stands out.
It's a pleasure to observe the details of life.....a fine picture, Care smile
Care MacADNski: I do appreciate my observation skills. Thank you.
