Blackberry duty and a nice compost pile

On our way to cutting back blackberries from some of the riparian plantings, we found a large wood placement that had caught a lot of debris over the winter. Good job!
Riparian plantings along Rock Creek that are always in danger of blackberries overtaking them. Of course the nettles and poison oak are coming up as well, so long pants are a must.
Bald eagle!
Believe it or not, the young tree with the yellow blossoms is a Big Leaf Maple. It is along Rock Creek, just after you cross the bridge.
A nice pile (7 yards) of chocolate fir mulch.
