A ROBIN BUILT THIS NEST IN OUR CARPORT ABOUT 3 YEARS AGO & EVERY SPRING IT IS OCCUPIED. I WONDER IF IT IS THE SAME MOTHER ROBIN EACH YEAR
I have noticed more this Spring more than any other how the weather forecasters have consistently been getting things all wrong in their forecasts. I was so looking forward to a second day of sunshine but awoke to cloudy sky’s & rain……AGAIN!!!! Very disappointing so I was in no hurry to get myself outside.
BAYFIELD'S SAILBOATS ANXIOUSLY AWAITING THE SUMMER WATERS
The Zurich Vet Clinic phoned to say Max’s ashes were there so little Motormouse & I made the dreary rain soaked drive over to Zurich & brought Max home. Very sad but I was comforted to place him next to Checkers. In my mind, the two big guys are side by side again.
Only saw one farmer out trying to get some plowing done & another spreading liquid fertilizer over the past couple days. Normally the farmers would be on the land by now planting crops. Because of the wet Spring the farm folks are about 3 weeks behind & of course that will result in lower yields this year.
If your interested in some good old & newer wild west history in & around Virginia City Nevada be sure to check out JOE & NANCY'S blog for lots of info & pics. JERRY & SUZY are still scrambling around LONE PINE California & you can see they have some fine photos of the area. SUE & MO are busy having a great time exploring along the Oregon coast. And check out Sue’s description of a little KAYAK DUNK in Oregon’s Winchuck River:))
LAST MAY I REDID OUR FIRE PIT AREA
It was so nice to see the sun break through the clouds this afternoon. So nice in fact that it inspired me to try setting up another bird feeder station. This time instead of hanging the feeder from a branch I dug a hole in our yard & stuck a big pole in it. With some scrap pieces of wood I put together what I hope will be something to deter the Squirrels. I know it doesn’t look so great but let’s just say it is a prototype. If it remains Squirrel free over the next few days I will paint the wood, line & level things up & screw it all together.
WELL, I KNOW IT AIN'T REAL PURDY BUT AS LONG AS IT WORKS IN KEEPING THE SQUIRRELS AT BAY
