Puffball Update



Over the weekend, apparently emboldened by the sun, or perhaps enraged by it? two puffball shrubberies began gnawing on this tree (with which they normally tolerate and in fact enjoy a peaceful coexistence with), clearly conspiring to begin squeezing the life out of this innocent bystander (the fire hydrant) This is the first documented example of puffballis shrubbia taking a malignant interest in metal. It's normal source of sustenance is, of course, concrete. Stay tuned.

This is the funniest blog ever! I live in the townhomes behind the Red Apple. My wife heard a rumor that PCC Natural Markets was supposed to move in, but I can't find any info on it. You should do some NH historical posts.

Thanks, Todd! I welcome yours as my first bonafide Newport Hills resident response!! Please join us at the meeting tonight at 7pm at Newport Hills Community Church for a lively discussion of whither the Red Apple...the rumors are flying at the moment. Maybe we can nail some down. Thanks again for reading!

One of the things that has always irked me about parking lots is how barren they are. Puffballs are a pretty lame excuse for greenery - what would be nice is some actual trees that might provide shade and a changing environment (blossoms, fall colors, etc.). Plus they encourage birdlife. And if one were to stage a farmer's market, they'd provide a welcome respite from the sun for browsers.

Hmmm...a farmer's market? Sounds like a new blog entry to me, blogalot!
