The trees had something around the trunks to keep them from climbing up, so they overtook everything else. Did I mention how disgusting they were?

Another regional variation, looks like. Here, a bagworm is a pest of conifers, and makes an individual bag decorated/camouflaged with needles. The bag is an inverted cone about an inch long. Those are hand picked.

Aren't common names fun? In England, the Rose of Sharon is not a summer blooming shrub, but a ground cover. Totally different species. Latin names are more specific, but a lot less amusing. Cheese plant, ice plant, Shepherd's Purse, Shepherd's clock....

Bagworms. Picked a few hundred of them in PA. Tried to kill my blue spruce trees. Failed!

Sue, go back to silk, that at least was interesting outcome.... Fabric.... Have you ever painted on silk?



Diane is the original FTSFM........... (Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant, #64) and is retired, duh!

Oops! Looks like while I was sliding fingers around the so-called keyboard on the iPad, someone was calling for a change of subject. I did try, didn't I, with the names of some plants?

So back to silk and such. I've tried painting on silk and decided it wasn't my cuppa. It takes some special techniques and a whole 'nuther set of supplies. You know how that goes. However, I am a willing consumer of such beautiful fabrics in the form of blouses and floaty tops.

Something I do with silk fibers (not fabric) is to fuse them onto gourds and glassware and also to make silk paper. One of my gourds -- cut, beaded, silk-fused -- was in a museum display this last winter along with other fiber art from fellow guild members. Such a deal!

Livin' the life

Third day of a 2-week trip to Quebec City and Montreal. Driveway camping for 2 nights at my sister's south of Montreal and then to Quebec city for 4 nights. After that back to Montreal for 4 nights and then heading home. Typical hot, muggy summer weather in the St. Lawrence river valley. So far mostly fun and uneventful except for the second day. Heading into major construction west of Ottawa and then having to traverse the city on a busy expressway, also with lots of disappearing lanes due to contruction, a warning light popped up on the dash of the F-150 - TPMS fault. At first I was confused, as I had been thinking about putting a TPMS on the trailer but had not done so, then realized I must have one on the truck that I didn't even know about. Unfortunately, it did not indicate which tire. Got through all the construction to the south side of Ottawa totally freaked out and afraid of a blowout and finally found an exit with a gas station. Checked the pressures, and sure enough the front passenger tire was very low. Filled it up and headed off again. About 15 minutes later, warning popped up again. Gulp! Kept driving, getting more and more worried, thinking about blowouts, trying to change a tire on the highway, etc. etc. Finally stopped and put in some canned air and slime which got us to my sister's without incident. Today, took the truck to my sister's local mechanic (always great to live in the country!) and he could not find a hole or nail, so either the valve was leaking or the seal was bad. Didn't seem like the TPMS was faulty since the tire WAS low. Will see tomorrow morning before we set off again for Quebec City how it is. I drove around some today, but not highway driving. Keeping fingers crossed. Strange thing is I also had a very low tire on my less than 2-week old Subaru Crosstrek last week. Just my number up for tire problems, I guess! Otherwise, having a great time.

It's a northern thing ... you deprived southerners have no idea how good your yard can taste.
I was thinking of getting a few cows for my yard, after the cows eat my yard, then I could have steaks, that would be tasty.

Speaking of regional variations ...

How many people outside of Ohio and Indiana have tried muskmelon? Looks almost like a cantaloupe.

Another shot at my sister's. Will be staying at a campground on the way back near her to get full hookups, since we will be 4 nights.
