I watched the sunrise over the barn as I fed Spots this morning. Sunrise is now just after 7.00. I may need to adjust to my winter schedule soon.
At breakfast I saw a hummingbird on the bottle brush just outside the nook window. I am reminded of the hummingbird on Ben’s marker. The hummingbirds find any number of interesting sources of nectar in the garden.
A white egret soaring gently through the sky stopped me. I watched it disappear into Jerry’s pine tree.
Mike and I are starting the renovation of Spots’s house for the winter. I cleared out the manure and dried mud from inside. The four by eight sheet of plywood that will be the new roof received two coats of stain sealer, the color that I rejected for the barn steps.
