This perfect robin's nest fell out of the Bradford Pear that split last week.
The clutch had already hatched and fledged, we think.
In the same tree, a little higher up... was another nest, hidden in the leaves and branches.
I'm telling you, little worlds are all around us!
I have been doing cleanup on the side of the house... and the barberries are slowly being cut back.
They are NOT fun to cut, and I hand-clip.
Same bushes, the week after we moved in.
They were so long they were laying on the stone wall, almost to the ground.
This is our new tv stand, on the right.
That is my old desk, on the left, that has seen better days. Tomorrow, it is
going to be loaded in the back of my car, and go to a furniture refinisher to be re-done.
It is perfectly sturdy, just worn out a little, and the folks in this shop, a husband and wife,
do the nicest re-makes. When I drop it off, I'll take some pictures of pieces they have finished and
have for sale.
Here's our happy girl and her daddy, watching the Royals when I got home from Jax's baseball game at 7:15. I have had so much fun this spring and summer, watching Jacob and Jax play soccer and
tee ball. Keith bemoans the kids who play with their video games all the time,
but I'm here to tell you there are hundreds, maybe thousands in this area who are still involved in sports, and whose parents and grandparents are at every game, cheering them on!
Go Piper Pirates!
