Good evening!

Day 125

I started the day with a hike and then cut my own hair again!



I went on another enjoyable hike this afternoon, after I had lunch!



During the hike, I planted the Allium Ursinum (ramsons) roots around Basecamp! I planted some on my hugelkultur at Plum Plateau, some along Volcano Road, some up at the Caldera of the "Volcano," a couple in Mike Hasaal's hugelkultur, and some by the Library!



These are a couple views of Plum Plateau from my hike!





These are a couple pictures from me planting at the top of the "Volcano."

Good you planted them in different spots, Dave. I am curious to know where/how they will grow.
Here in the Netherlands (as well as in the UK) they grow in forests of deciduous trees. In general they like to be shaded as long as there are leaves on the trees. They bloom in early spring, when there's still sunlight under the trees. But I hope they will do well in different places too ... You never know until you experiment.
When you see green leaves appearing in early spring, having the smell of garlic, and maybe even some white star-like flowers ... Please take some photos!

Good afternoon! Hello Inge! I think it will be interesting to see what grows and where it grows; I do not know if I will be around to see what happens. There are many more adventures and things to do, and there is such a big wide world to explore and experience. I do not know where the leaves I am currently working on scattering will land and take me.

Day 126

This morning was pretty foogy, and I thought that made for an interesting hike!







I think of the fog kind of as a little veil over the world.



I like how the sun tries to break up the fog.



And the contrasts seem to get more intense as the sun becomes brighter. These were from another hike I did later today.





I like how later in the day, the blue sky behind the fog starts to become more apparent.





I especially like this last view from the Caldera of the "Volcano," because the sharp contrast between the foggy dark scene on the left and the bright blue sky on the right just seems gorgeous!

You're right Dave. There's a lot to explore all over planet Earth.
And there will be new 'boots' to follow you up. I hope they will see the plants growing out of the seeds / roots you planted and show photos in their threads.

great pics Dave!

if you are going to stay in one spot for a half an hour or more to do some work,
you could get some good timelapses if youre camera has an interval shot feature or just roll video and speed it up in video editing software

Good evening! Hello Inge! Yes, I do look forward to seeing what the future 'boots' post in their threads! Hello M.! I do not like taking timelapse videos for personal reasons.

Day 126.5

I stayed for half the day, so, I am only counting it as half a day in my thread.

I spent the morning gathering junkpoles.



These are a couple views from where I felled junkpoles.





These are some of the junkpoles that I felled.



These are some of the junkpoles I felled after I limbed them.



This is Doug loaded up with the junkpoles I collected and prepared this morning.

 
On my planet I'm considered quite beautiful. Thanks to the poetry in this tiny ad:
