Trees & Daisy...

 

 

Haven't seen this in person yet, but I will as it is not that far from MySean's small ranch outside Sheridan.  


 


(MySean is a Project manager for Hampton Lumber)



In other news, Peanut has had her name changed to Daisy.

She will answer to anything so it hasn't been a difficult transition.  Took her to the vet Tuesday to get her current on a host of vacs and a checkup. (She lost the vision in her left eye when Cody's Anatolian Shepherd bit her head last summer.)    She was really good for the vet, in fact he commented that she was mellow for a mini doxie.  It was a very tiring day for her and she needed a wee nap when we got back home.

    1. Now I want to find others. I've seen a few flying around the country, but hadn't seen this one.
      She's a Daisy!

  3. Is the Larch, Myrtle, by another name? They make great bowls. I looked for the smiley face on google map, but I couldn't find it ... Oh Well.

    1. The larch is a "deciduous" conifer (more commonly referred to in some areas as Tamarack).
      Oregon Myrtlewood is a broadleaf "evergreen" native to Southwestern Oregon and Northwestern California. Yes they do make beautiful bowls.
      Put these coordinates in google satellite maps and it will take there 45°02'29.1"N 123°31'15.1"W It is upside down, and Map satellite photo was taken in summer when both were green, but you can see it. Happy hunting!

    2. Thanks! I got it. That's funny because Tamarack is an evergreen here. It's also known as "Lodgepole" by the natives because so straight and branchless quite high. They're everywhere around here. They have thin bark, short needles, and very small pine cones.

      As far as the Myrtle goes, it grows right about where I had always thought.

    3. There are a lot of Lodgepole pine in S Oregon.

      Here is a comparison of Lodgepole vs Tamarack

  6. Mini doxie. So sorta like a Vienna Sausage size? :)

    The tree smiley looks awesome. What a great idea. I sometimes think on the level of a particularly immature five year old, and I thought of a couple more shapes that made me giggle.

  8. I must have missed one of your entries. Not sure how to came to rescue Daisy. You still have your Jack Russell right? I have had Sugar Pi for 3 weeks now. You can imagine the first month having an 8 week old puppy. I'm proud of myself. She is a dreamboat of a puppy. PWD are like non shedding Labs with Einstein brains. Dinah is having an adjustment. Hope all is well with you, Brig.

    1. I brought her home with me from my daughter's. They are all so busy with work & college they decided she needed to come home with me. She has been a hoot to have around. Willie is still here and adjusting to having a "your not the boss of me" Daisy in residence.
      Congrats, being brave enough to take on a pup is something to be proud of! Sugar Pi sounds like a sweetheart.
      All is well here, nine months into NOT wearing a mask, or following unconstitutional mandates!

    1. I'm so tired of the bad mouthing of the ag and forest industries. They provide not only food & shelter, while trying to be good stewards of the land, but so many jobs if one looks to the long view.

  10. She's adorable, Brig. And the forest industry--it's a renewable resource. People forget that. I was so impressed by the forestry practices on the Grand Ronde Reservation in Oregon when we visited there in 2015.
