Club Antler

Club Antler

Elk strolling by our front porch is common here on The Orchard Compound. But this morning when a group of five bulls walked by, this guy’s freaky antlers caught my eye. Not a great shot – through a dirty window in the dark. But you can see it grew out sideways. Can he use it as a club?

While we humans are freaking out over this unprecedented heatwave here in the U.S. Pacific Northwest, our cold-tolerant gardenias are loving it.
