The condo association is having the decks and balconies power-washed and stained, something that happens every I’m not sure how many years, so all objects have to be removed. When we took down the hanging ferns over the balcony, we found something unexpected; that dark object in the center is a bird’s nest. A family of birds came and went without our noticing them.

It’s not a great picture, but these two finches were doing a mating dance on the balcony yesterday evening.

We gave them their privacy.

Cat staring through closed window at squirrel

The squirrel seems to understand the concept of “window.” It remains unperturbed, even when the cat tries to bat at it.

Fort Nonsense, that is. The remains of this small earthwork Civil War fort have recently been turned into a historical park in Mathews County, Virgina. Here are some pictures of what’s left.
