So, I was supPOSed to take the foster cats back to the rescue yesterday, but that didn't happen, so I went shlepping out in the woods instead.
But the woods were full of wildflowers.
I walked a snowmobile trail:
and found these pretty, lacy flowers.
But then ... BUT THEN ... I came across something that I'd only seen in pictures before ...
Dun dun dunnnnnnn ...
GIANT HOGWEED. (cue foreboding music here.)
Giant hogweed is extremely poisonous. Like, kill-you-dead poisonous. Needless to say, I gave it a wide berth, seeing as how I can break out in a rash just looking at poison ivy.
Once I got done walking, I had to go and get some soft-serve. Just to soothe my giant-hogweed-rattled nerves, dontcha know.
And to ADD to the "odd things always happen to me" file, on Saturday, I had a half a loaf of stale bread to get rid of, so I tossed it into the brushland behind the back yard for the birds.
A little while later, I saw a FOX running across the back yard with a slice of bread in his mouth.
Because ... foxes need carbs? Yeah, I have no idea. It's just Wild Kingdom run amok all over the place around here.
