Let me tell you, it is Fit Dog Friday and time to join Slim Doggy, Emma from MyGBGV Life and To Dog With Love in the blog hop!
I recently received an email asking bout the nubs you see sticking out of the water and along the path, and all the things that look like sticks on the beach.
You’ll see a bunch together on the path to the right and ahead of me on the path and a couple next to my left paws.
These nubs are called knees and the sticks are roots. They both belong to the cypress trees in the wetland part of the yard. If you’re in areas where there is swamp the knees are usually sticking just above the water level and can be quite tall.
Now let’s look back and join in FlashBack Fridays hosted by Five Sibes Mom and Love is being owned by a Husky.
And now for the Pet Parade Blog Hop hosted by Rascal and Rocco and co-hosted by Jan's Funny Farm, Basil the Bionic Cat, Barking from the Bayou, and Love is being Owned by a Husky!
Y’all hurry on back now!
That was interesting about the nubs. Have a fabulous Friday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
Oh now I learnt something, how great! Are that nubs chewable of is it better to ignore them?ReplyDelete
Interesting. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
So, I gotta ask, how many of those bumpers do you have, or do you only have one that lasts forever??? Do you sleep with one too? It seems like you are always carrying one around.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the nature lesson Hawk. We never lives in your area, so there are lots of things we've never seen.ReplyDelete
Cypress knees are pretty cool when they are in the marsh...then they get pretty big! I see you have been very busy, Hawk. Lots of romping and running outside. Is the weather still nice there?ReplyDelete
Very cool! Have a good weekend Hawk :)ReplyDelete
Hey, Hawk, you get so much exercise. You must be in great form.ReplyDelete
I didn't know about knees ~ thanks for the enlightenment & enjoy your weekend romping around the wetland part of your yard!ReplyDelete
Very cool! I have never seen a cypress tree before and never would have thought the sticks coming out of the water were actually a part of them!ReplyDelete
Those knees are neat. Mr. N likes tugging on the tree roots by the river sometimes.ReplyDelete
Very interesting! We enjoy seeing the open water since there's nothing but ice around here!ReplyDelete

I didn't know about the knees, don't think we've ever seen any. Looking good, Hawk!ReplyDelete
