Firewood perk

One of the many things I like about heating our home with a wood burning stove is that I get to go to places like this to cut firewood.

When I selected my camera, I wanted one that was relatively small, light, and quick to use because it would go on many back country hikes and encounter many different conditions requiring a lot of versatility.

Here is an example. These photos were taken about 20 seconds apart.

This is another blossom I remember so vividly from childhood. It’s actually a shrub, will get up to 12 feet tall and has a beautiful scent.
