Making memories at Cap Sauers: Not fond memories this time, just a little thicket of multi-flora rose, wound around some fallen limbs, that put up a tremendous fight before finally succumbing to the lopper. I walked away with just one small face wound. Around the site, other volunteers were engaged in similar struggles, cutting rose and honeysuckle and loading it onto one of our two fires.
Yet another cool morning, though it came with enough sun to coax blooms out of a few spring beauties. Days from now they'll probably number in the thousands, yet it's still exciting to see the first bloom of the season from each of the species. That's been the story of spring thus far.
Thanks to all who attended, including first-time Palos volunteer Mike.
