MY NEW FRONT PORCH AREA WITH STONES

I have a new lease on life!!
The area around my front porch has been wild and messy for a long time and last week, Paul laid these stones for me.


It looks soooo nice and I'm so proud, now!!
Also, when clients move furniture in and out of my house, they have more room to maneuver.
AND, it just looks so nice and clean!
The next thing I'll do is plant dwarf creeping thyme or some kind of dwarf grass in the dirt between the stones.  I think that will look really nice, too.


While Paul was here, he trimmed my hedge.  It had spread out so much that it crowded the sidewalk and I felt like I was living in a cave.
Now, with the new rocks and much shorter and thinner hedge, my curb appeal just looks so much nicer.


While I was trimming some more and digging under the hedge, I came across these little turnip looking things growing on above ground roots from one of my large oak trees.  This is the second year I'm seen these and I'm so curious about them.
Do you know what these are??
Please let me know if you have any informaiton.

TOUCHED BY A WILD MOUNTAIN GORILLA...AMAZING!!

I've always read that you lower your eyes, so it won't look like you're challenging an animal by staring.  I guess ESPECALLY, a wild mountain gorilla!!  
Notice, when the silver back is near, the guy lowers his head. 
 Also, I've read that you don't show your teeth, but I guess he just couldn't help smiling at this amazing encounter!!

INJURED DOLPHIN APPROACHES DIVER FOR HELP...AMAZING TO WATCH !!


During a night dive last January at Gadren Eel Cove in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii; a bottlenose dolphin caught in a fishing line approached scuba diver Keller Laros for help.
The dolphin’s left pectoral fin was stuck, wrapped around fishing line with a hook embedded into its body. Laros, who was equipped with scissors, was able to free his fellow mammal and the amazing rescue was caught on film by Martina Wing.
