Beautiful Day in da U.P.
« on: June 25, 2013, 11:31:20 PM »
I'm up to the cabin doing chores. Even though I'm not doing anything most people would consider play, only work, I'm enjoying my brief stay. Working on equipment, mowing and brush hoggin, and a bit of driving around in the evening. I have to get back in the morning. :)

The wild iris picture below is a good one, but not sure it was worth the 30 some ticks that jumped on me while down in the ditch taking the picture.

Nice pictures and I love that old tractor. Ain't it a little tough having to pack up and leave all that beauty? smiley_sun

Yup, it was also good to see Uncle Lou up and about.

Looks like everything is blooming and growing.   :)

Nope, no trilium in any of those photos, but some other interesting specimens. :)

First off, give me that and nobody would ever see or hear from me again (I knew that would make you all happy  ;D) and secondly might I ask what you carry in the milk crate on the bush hog?  Great pictures too, that's one outhouse that might actually smell good inside :D!

Some odds and end tools or water or whatever. The crate is bolted on :) Much easier than trying to put stuff on the tractor.

Your place looks like a place where companies would be fighting to film a commercial there.
Everything's blooming.

Youve got a real pretty country side there  i also Had a tick climbing on the kitchen doorway this morning. I was in the woods working last night and must have brought that bad boy inside. Everything is beautiful this time of year till it quits raining. I was hoping tick season was over.

Nice pictures Jeff. Is that a Rino brush cutter you have behind the Ford? I have the LT6 Rino and really like it.
