Dead Wood Heart


I found this dead wood heart on the driveway of the once-abandoned church across the street. Since the new owners got in trouble with the City for using heavy equipment in clearing out the woods (which they weren't supposed to do anyway!) ... they had to use hand tools. For a week, the sound of chain saws was overpowering.

Then, wonderful silence.
After that, the REST of the story!
Seems they were already mad about the City's involvement (ahem!) ...
Then, because they had to use hand tools, and didn't really know much about plants at all, the workers all came down with a rousing case of poison oak! Snicker.

So all work is abandoned until at least the end of the year!!!
Official story is they "got another project that had to come first".

Yee haw!!!

Now THAT'S worth a dead wood heart!!!
