Birdfeeding

Today is warm and mostly sunny.

I fed the birds.

We cut up dead wood in the orchard and hauled it to the firepit.

I saw a zebra swallowtail in the ritual meadow.  :D  While native to this area, they are uncommon here, as this is the northern part of their range and their caterpillars have only one host plant, pawpaw.  I have tried and tried to get pawpaw growing here, but they're fussy things that dislike transplanting.  :/  Perhaps the changing climate has encouraged zebra swallowtails to move north more.

EDIT 7/14/20 -- I picked up a trolley full of wood in the orchard and dumped it in the firepit.
