Today is mostly sunny and warm.

I fed the birds.  I saw a male goldfinch on the thistle feeder earlier today.  :D

We worked in the orchard again, clearing brush and cutting it up. 

EDIT 7/16/20 -- I picked up dead wood in the orchard and dumped it on the firepit.

EDIT 7/16/20 -- I gathered some of the walnut fronds from the orchard and spread them in the ritual meadow to dry before they can be burned.

EDIT 7/16/20 -- We burned off the firepit tonight.
