Look what treasures I found on the way to the cabin this week. We stopped at an “antique / junk” place along the road and made them an offer on a neat little pile of “stuff”.
The Purple Martin is a very beautiful friendly native bird found in the Eastern half of the U.S. who is being decimated by the introduction of the European pests Starlings and English House Sparrows. The Martin loves to live near humans and is indeed now dependent on humans to help provide nesting places. Its beautiful song and a graceful acrobatic flight make it a favorite to watch.
Last weekend Mike excavated a pathway, and this weekend we worked together to lay the stones. Now we have a pretty little stone walkway from the driveway to the cabin porch.
