I finished the staining of the fence in the side yard today.  I could not find shoe covers so I tied plastic bags over my shoes. Two coats and the fence came back to life.  The stain nourishes the wood and includes a sealant to protect from winter rain and summer sun.  Bob suggested allowing the bottom edge of the fence to breathe so that the painted surface does not buckle.

I want to find a bird book.  A flock of red breasted birds were foraging for worms on the sidewalk strip garden.  On command, the entire flock flew up into a tree.  Judy tells me that robins in this country may come larger.
