a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

An Afternoon's Work

Honey suckle, black berries and poop plants*...
what the birds leave us to grow.
See that small bare spot?
And the work continues as the pile grows.

*Poop plants are what the birds plant when they poop.
Whatever seeds they have eaten seem to grow well.

I love your pile of progress- I always feel like I have accomplished something when I can see the evidence piling it.

Gail, if you are not adding to your pile of rocks, you are adding to the burn pile. Never ends does it, as more rocks/boulders will be found and rescued to your pile to do stuff with and there is always cleanup, Eh. Have a wonderful day and hello to your family :)

Is that a new type of plant ~ poop plant . If so it would probably grow well around the mini horses lol Speaking of which one day we have to have a "mini" conversation .

You sure do have a way with words! "Poop plants"! I love it! Is that the official term? Ha ha!

Birds are good little farmers aren't they. Yes they are.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

For us it is honey locust, buck brush, mulberries and blackberries. Gotta love them piles of progress!

Sandy said...

Those birds sure know when and where to plant those seeds with their added fertilizer.

All the clearing, it's time for a bonfire.

It's amazing how fast these poop plants grow especially this year around our place with all the rain we've had it has been a constant job to keep from being buried in a green jungle.
Blessings and keep up the good work

Gee and I thought NM was the only place where poop plants flourish. I have grapes growing in the back yard....I never planted them but the Blue Jays saw an opening and took care of me. I also have many, many different kinds of sunflowers coming up along the south side of the house after all this rain. Same source...birdie, birdie in the air, sending poop plants to grow there.

Poop plants seem to be the only thing that grows in my yard anymore!

I have never known them to be called poop plants before but it is wonderful how all creatures give Mother Nature a helping hand.

That's a good pile, Gail.
Hope you have a good evening. :)

In some countries that grow coffee, the bird poop that has "processed" the coffee beans has found a real market. Expensive coffee.

Better check out those poop plants.
