View from the Window

Last week, we could look out the bedroom window and see the patio below. We could see our neighbor to the north. We could see across the street and down the hill. And if you craned your neck, you could see the Lake down the hill.

It's just a little bit disconcerting to look out the window and see nothing but BIG TREE.

We have tree across the house, across the deck, across the deck stairs, up against the downstairs door, and across the entrance to the front porch. Leaving the house involves a carefully manipulated jungle trek! And the "good news" is ----- more storms are headed our way!

Hummingbird fact for today: A hummer nest has an outside diameter of about 1 ½ inches and the inside is about the size of a penny. It is made of moss and lichens to be very well camouflaged and may be secured with spider web. The nest takes about a week to construct.
