hmm interesting. I used to have to mow the south 40 at my dad's work, literally it was a 40 acre field of nothing but grass. And a few tree stumps and rocks you had to watch out for.

hopefully that will help with some of the work and make it look more natural.
Here's to you, all you insidious creatures of green..er I mean cacti.

Even more exciting is that we discovered yesterday that the Long-Eared Owles are back!

Love the owl chicks! Would you be willing to do some "time lapse" of them?

Harriet,
We got out of there pretty fast. Don't want to disturb them very much. If I had a camera I could set up and leave there that would be ideal, but I think climbing up there too often would result in abandonment.

Daiv, I'm sure you are right. But if you get glimpses please be sure to record them for us (me).
