The Martinez Beavers

Bleak gets better

Share the beaver gospel!

Good news, yesterday I found out that we don’t need the changes to the ad until a week after Amelia comes back!

And the weather was kind and did not start it’s looming rainstorm last night in the mountains until Jon did lots of this:

Now I know what you’re thinking, and I thought so too. No beavers in the area. Yet.

Things are green and springing up in the mountains. We were surprised how many wildflowers were making their way and how nice the green grass looks under all the places we were busily mourning lost ponderosa. Nature has her plan, doesn’t she? When one door closes another opens. We have one ponderosa that is proudly thriving next to its towering dead neighbor we’re still waiting for the neighbor to take down. The living tree had its topremoved by lightening. The dead tree was tall and stately.

So you never know how things will turn out. Nature has her plan, and sometimes her plan is beavers.
