<p>Recrudescence has been a thread on Tweeters lately, it being fall and all.</p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>My 'ol pals from the former Anchor Pub in Everett , Bill and Bob ,came by to visit me the other day here in Port Townsend. Budding naturalists, they were  excited about learning a new word on Tweeters: recrudescence.</p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>Bill was so excited he looked it up in the dictionary, and found it to be a medical term denoting a renewed outbreak of a condition. "hey, it's like when you go to your doctor and he say's 'remember that creeping crud you got rid of last spring, well now
 essentially  it's come back - you got recrud now' Bill explained. " The doctor continued -'and furthermore, that wart I removed then is regrowing  so I guess you're getting rewarted too. Sorry' ".</p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>"Bummer" replied Bob, but I think  that word is pronounced reCRUDEsence, not reCRUDesence"</p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>"Crud, crude, whatever" Bill grumped. "You get the picture".</p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>Of course the guys understood the naturalist meaning on Tweeters about how fall day length, ect sorta mirrors spring-like conditions causing birds gonads to go into action for a bit. Around here at my place it's been mostly singing Robins and Song Sparrows
 recruding.</p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>As we sat in my little living room with the door open, a  single Pacific Chorus Frog called loudly just outside the door, and a bit later another croaked in the backyard. Unlike the tremendous chorus they produce in spring in ponds about a block away, these
 scattered frogs were calling singly.</p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>"I guess the chorus has disbanded and these guy's are working on their solo careers" Bob said.</p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>Sometimes flowers have a bit of recrudescence. Last year quite a few Nootka Roses rebloomed this time off year, and often the 'ol Pacific Dogwood back at my old house bloomed a second time in the fall. Interesting having fruit and flowers on these plants
 at the same time.</p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>"Maybe we should take a walk and see what other recrud we can find around here" Bill said with a grin. Good idea.</p>
