That hornbill is incredible!

I received two, yes two lovely paintings from edelc.

This spooky Bat (which unfortunately got a little damaged in transit):



and this spectacular Hornworm:



She also sent a chocolate bar but it arrived in a liquid state and could not be reconstituted.

Thank you edelc!  I love both these paintings, especially the caterpillar.   Kiss

Update on the rock dams; the channel is completely grassed across in some spots, and grass is sprouting up through the piles of rocks:





Making another berm of rocks on a slope below my vegetable garden:

Here's another rain harvesting/erosion control project I'm working on, putting a log berm along the power easement to slow runoff from the county road. I plan to put log and brush berms along as many contours on our place as I can to slow the runoff and, we hope, keep our driveway and the country road from washing out again in the next flood.  If we had loads of $$ we'd make swales, which are just ditches on contour, but which have an amazing ability to rehydrate dry landscapes.  Small structures such as log and rock berms work as well, but you have to install a lot more of them.  Here's a video about a property designed with water harvesting structures, which went from a dry rundown old cattle ranch to a lush, water-filled productive landscape in about a decade:  https://vimeo.com/159459245  I have no doubt we could do the same here, given time.  I've been spending about an hour a day on my little log berms.  In a few years, I will have made a difference!

Here's the kind of excruciating trivia I have nowhere else to share, the text of a letter to Ernest from his friend the pianist Percy Grainger, thanking him for a knitted waistcoat:



I wonder where all the tonnage of stuff Ernest knitted ended up...eaten by moths, no doubt....
