Friday night DH came to my workroom to show me that he only had 3 sour cream rolls left in the freezer (hint! hint!) Saturday night he came again waving an empty bag.. (HINT! HINT!!) Well it just so happens I need some holes dug and help moving some railroad ties so yesterday I baked some and he's a happy hubby indeed!
My path is the forest is a soft bed of undisturbed pine needles. It is comforting to my old feet to tread upon them and they smell divine.. The key word here is undisturbed....
But yesterday here and there were ruts where something had been digging.
This trench is about 6 feet long and 8-10" deep. So this digger had to be fairly good sized.
In fact this area is about 8'x3' and looked as if a rototiller had been working it. I'm going to send the photos to a friend in the dept. of wildlife and see if I can find out what is doing this. I suspect it is a badger but we haven't seen a badger in 30 years... but since they're a nocturnal animal they could be out there while I'm sleeping... I did see my barn owl today and not too far from the barn.
