Hoary Tick-trefoil (Desmodium canescens)

These are much more populous this year in Timber Branch Park in Alexandria Virginia than in previous years. I wonder why? Is it the dry weather?

Cullen Builds a Desk

Over the weekend I helped my son Cullen build a custom desktop that stretches the width of his bedroom. There were several misadventures along the way including some mis-measured and mis-cut wood, several trips to Home Depot, and a lot of manhandling of 10 foot pieces from his basement up to his top floor and back. But finally we succeeded in cutting the main pieces and the support structure. Next stop: Assembly, staining, and a satin finish. Plus a decision on where to drill the holes for computer equipment power cables.
