Me & Nathan wrestling out the stubborn stump (nearly 3 years ago).

We succeeded eventually, that stump is still in the garden. Its too heavy to lift into the car for a tip-run.

This is St, Marys, the church Cherry goes to. I've photographed it for many years. It s odd because its sited within the walls of a medieval fortress (Portchester Castle).

The church was built during the 1120s by the Normans. The yew tree might be older. Most old churches have yew trees next to them.

Really beautiful. I visited a St. Marys near Leeds. Had the same overall feel and I bet it had a yew tree.

Probably. Many of those yews predate the churches and are over 2000 years old. Some predate Christianity itself. They were associated with bronze age burial grounds.

Horn Toads are really lizards.

They are found throughout the southwest United States.  Some consider them scarce.  I seem to find them often enough on my hikes.

But there's nothing more beautiful than the real thing.

Is that a full grown one? I imagined them a little larger.

I've never found one more than two-to-three inches in length.

You know they shoot a stream of blood out of their eyes when agitated.

My wife does that too.

I bought her one of those 'Mood Rings' once - it turned black as soon as she put it on .. then it caught fire .. my fault again apparently.

Sometimes black and white is just too cool...

I like that photo above in black & white.

 

Driving south on U.S. 101 there's a vista point along the Gaviota coast in Santa Barbara county.

The Amtrak Pacific Surfliner rout goes right by here.  There are many places along this stretch of the county with pristine beaches to explore, fish, and surf.
