Nature is beautiful.
Normally, hauling wood is a total chore. It was an absolutely beautiful day, the temperature was great, no rain, and I had my radio going in the background. That old pile of slab wood had to be dealt with now, or be burned. I started this project earlier in the summer, but got freaked out by the snakes that were curled up underneath the wood. This time I made a lot of noise, pounded, jumped on the wood, and yelled for them to all go away. It must have worked, because there were no snakes.
While I'm working on that, cutting it up, and carrying on, I was thinking about other projects, particularly about staining wood different colors, other than the normal stain colors of pecan, oak, natural, ebony, and the stuff they sell in the stores.
As the sun was setting further down the horizon, and as I pulled up one slab of pine to cut, I noticed one little raspberry that was stuck on the wood. Then I noticed that the raspberry color bled into the wood. I want to share that pic with you. Then, the next slab had a red stain from a raspberry, and a big-ass snake skin.......AAAh
Here are the pic's.
I can handle spiders, worms, mice. I can't stand snakes. Raspberries are good.
