Putting the wood in . Have a resident porcupine who shows up each evening. He/she doesn't do much. Have given her a few nudges with a rake and made some discouraging noises but she keeps showing up. Just sits on the lawn .
It has been raining, summer rain. on and off the last few days. The air has finally cleared of all the heat and humidity. It has been an amazing summer with weeks of beautiful sun filled days and quiet warm summer nights. We are so blessed to live in such a tranquil and life affirming place
