Here's another shot of that favorite apple tree out back with a lonely blue birdhouse. You really can't see it in this shot, but the back ten acres have really grown up since we moved in. It use to be pretty open back there; you could even drive a vehicle along a pretty primitive trail. Now, trees and brush inhibit travel quite a bit. There was a time that you could even see the massive pines that line the rear property line from the back steps, not any more. Mild weekend coming our way 40's? Lots of melting, I hope.
