Frosted seed head of a now deceased firegrass plant
“Not hardy in Zone 5”
More 50mph + winds on Thursday suggested the fence may have been blown full of corn shucks again
Off to check that out this morning under still breezy conditions, and sure enough, there they are
After the previous episode of high winds I wasn’t sure there was enough trash left in the field to do it again — wrong!
Even tighter weaving of the shucks in the chain link fence this time
Odd how near the left hand posts the fence blew clear — wind had to get through somewhere?
Field of origin — ditch across the road is filled with shucks as well
Had I headed up IL Rt 1 northward I could have been halfway to Chicago in an hour and not have pedaled at all
