I finally got a fence up again, so there’s no longer that feeling of being a zoo attraction for the mall patrons across the way. It’s a bit narrower than it used to be — the eco-renovation took away a good foot or two of depth. But OK.
The beautiful spruce tree, which lived happily in a large pot for 10 years, did not survive the winter indoors. It has found a new life as a favorite perch, however, and at the moment I’m loathe to get rid of it, because the birds love to hop around on it.
