It's just early fall and already the colors surrounding us are fading to yellows and browns. This round birdhouse, that hangs in an apple tree out back, needs a little roofing attention, it looks like. Around here, weekends in September and October are set aside to ready the house and yard for the winter winds that will be blowing here soon. And nope, this birdhouse doesn't swing in the winter winds. I'll pick this one up, along with about 15 more that are sprinkled about the yard, in a month or so. Then, as the snow flies, mice will make their winter homes in them, as they are stored in our outbuildings.
Birds dwell here in the summer; mice curl up cozy in them in the winter.
Every season, almost everyday something is happening in here.
