There's been a lot of animal watching. We added a corn holder for the squirrels.
We pick up the left over corm from a field after it was harvested. Here it is out on the patio to dry out a bit. This squirrel hit the mother load!
Another lucky squirrel found that we left out the bird seed. He climbed right in and out of the bag to get his treat.
I thought the squirrels were going through the corn like crazy. Turns out they just take a few nibbles and go on to the next piece.
A fresh pile of wood was delivered last weekend. We have been enjoying fires in our fireplace and eating 'fire cookies' (smores). We also discovered that our fireplace has a trap door in the bottom, so when you want to clean it out, you just let the ashes fall down the door. The door leads to under the house where there is a large holding area of sorts. That was a smart design!
