Sunday was a lovely sunny day, or maybe it was Monday, so spent the whole day in the garden at one thing or another. I put new plastic on the smaller greenhouse, which meant up on the ladder for the roof part. A wind came up so had a bit of trouble holding the plastic down while nailing slates on. Anyway, I finally finished it. Just have to re-do the door of the larger greenhouse. Walking up the property, the Black and White Warbler flew by in front of me...no picture. Then I took a break and sat on the deck watching a male and female Woodpecker at one of the feeders by the deck. The female flew to a branch on a tree about 25 ft. away. The male looked over at her and also flew to the branch. Then he got sort of over her and made out, lol. I couldn't believe it, first time I've seen that. When finished, he flew back to the feeder and started eating again. His job done. Then after a couple of minutes she flew off and he followed.
Yesterday, although we did get a bit of drizzle off and on, I finished off the fence that I had started repairing and hauled off the wood from the archway that was knocked down. Himself keeps bringing back stuff from other peoples junk that they have by the side of the road for clean up. I don't know what I'm going to do with him. He keeps saying, "But this is good, we may be able to use it some time." lol
Parents are coming tomorrow. It's also my mothers birthday and my daughter phoned this morning and guilted me into making a birthday cake. Will have to do that sometime today. Raining at the moment but suppose to clear up.
This is what happens to the mess bags of food I put out. Such clever birds. Can't help but love em!
