The Daily Bucket is a place where we can post and exchange our observations about the natural happenings in our neighborhoods. Birds, bugs, blossoms and more - each notation is a record that we can refer to in the future as we try to understand the natural patterns that are unwinding around us.Seattle. December 10, 2012.
The Red-Alder (Alnus rubra) leaves are finally falling. They are the last to come to earth, many still green when they land. A year ago they scattered in early December. This year they've waited a bit longer.
Seattle. December 10, 2012. The Red Alder trees in the Forest have shed about 50% of their leaves.
Sorry about the brevity of today's Bucket, but sometimes the words just aren't there. So, it's up to you all today. What's happening in your part of the world and where might that be? Everyone is welcome to bring their observations to the Bucket.
I'll be back in the early afternoon and again after dinner.
