Earlier today I was pulling dandelions. I had dumped a bucket full and was into the second filling when the black flies got too bad and I gave up. I just set the bucket and weed killer next to the doorstep. Look who showed up to the bucket buffet!
Finally getting some seat time to move the pile of dirt in the work yard. It’ll be good to have the extra space to maneuver around. Continue reading Work yard expansion

Captured this moment on the doorstep this afternoon, just on our way out for a snowshoe walk. An ermine found itself a meal of squirrel. This is a couple times I have seen this ermine near the house. It probably explains why we have not seen any mice this winter. Which is ok by me.
