|Air layer in a Jefferson filbert|
Kubota and I were having one of those "young-bull, old-bull" discussions when he shared the fact that he did not think I had a life.
I have been playing around with air layering as a method of propagating a small number of choice specimens.

While walking out back the last few times I noted that this willow seems to be irresistible to yellowjackets. The first time I assume a skunk had just dug up their nest but they were still swarming in this tree four days later. I looked and was not able to see a nest. They appeared to be foraging for something. Apologies for the shaky video. I filmed it with magnification because I did not want to get too close.

|Sorry for the poor photos. He moved too fast.|
