They say a photo is worth a 1000 words...

I don't know too many details about living in Shady Cover (and over to Prospect), but when I drive through the area, its got a real "feel" to it - country living.

Seems the same way driving through Eagle Point Oregon too. All 2 are along the Crater Lake highway.

Driving to Mill Creek Falls / Barr Creek Falls and The Avenue of the Giant Boulders the other day, I took this image.

It seems to "capsulize" what I enjoy about the Shady Cove / Prospect, Oregon area...

Ah! The Curse of the Teasle, captured by a drive-by shooter!

Sorry, it's a very picturesque shot; a peacock from India, horses from Europe, and who knows where that stinking teasle comes from? I tend to get irrational about alien invasives. The worst, of course, are those wretched Himalaya blackberries that grow 10 feet tall. Now I have this stuff growing along my driveway that seems impervious to anything. Roundup won't kill it, repeated mowing won't kill it, fire won't kill it, it gets about 4' tall and it spreads. I don't even know its name.

Grumble grumpf. Just taking a break, because my forearms are bleeding.

You just haven't been "trained in the art" of herbicide combat yet

I used to have a pesticide consultant license.

Round-up will get it.

I've never failed, when used around the last 3 weeks of September. The leaves must be washed, as dust destroys the herbicide. Apple in the morning when its cool with no drift. Autumn weather and changes in the plant will draw it into the roots and wipe-it-out. Following spring, take a broomstick, swing it at the brown brittle stems and they will shatter to smithereens. If you can irrigate the plant several days beforehand to make "it happy", the process is even more effective. I had practice from working at 4 country clubs and 2 university campuses. But for blackberry, Roundup is virtually useless in spring and mid-summer.

Yeah, I don't mind some imports. That's how most of us got to live on this continent - our imported relatives that crossed the ocean.
