Not much happening up at the playhouse these days. It's no fun playing in this hot humid August weather. Miserable! That's what it is.
My plans are still to add a small table and couple of chairs, and something I can call a heater that will burn a stick of wood and heat a kettle of water.
It's been a fun summer up at the teeny tiny garden. Why, I must have potted up 200 plants, maybe more.
and lots of Beauty Berry bushes that are beginning to bloom, or grow purple berries.
We have a maple tree down by the pond that was damaged back in 1996 during Hurricane Fran. The top was broken out, but we left the tree alone.
Last spring a big pileated woodpecker moved into a hole in that maple tree. We have enjoyed watching this bird as it flew in every night around 6:30 and left out early every morning around 6:30.
During a rain storm last week a big dead limb broke off that maple tree and landed in the edge of the pond.
Poppy pulled it out of the water.
Soon after, a mushroom began growing where the limb broke off, and has kept growing. It almost looks like Mr. Woodpecker had an awning installed, except his hole is further up the tree.
A few days ago we saw two pileated woodpeckers on the tree. He, or she, must have found a mate.
Thank you for visiting.
