Just a small sampling of the hail we discovered this evening after we got home from church. A few trees in the woods are down and a lot of small branches will need to be picked up. It looks like we missed a good storm.
The weather has warmed up. Audrey noticed this raccoon hanging around our sap buckets this afternoon. She tried chasing it away by banging a spoon in a pan. It only ran up our maple tree and then took a nap. It is still enjoying its cozy napping space.
While it slept, we made sure all the lids were tight on the sap buckets and then put a heavy brick on each one. We do not want a nosy raccoon to ruin the sap we collected!
The bluebirds are coming up to our porch and enjoying our feeders this year. They are very skittish, so often fly away as we walk by the windows. I hope they keep coming! We also watched a huge woodpecker for a little while!
